Tarcutta
Release Date: 23/07/2009
Catalogue No.: HSR051
Record Label: Hidden Shoal
Format: CD

On their self-titled debut album, Tarcutta transport the listener on a compelling ride through a breathtaking musical landscape. Right from the scene-setting intro of opener ‘Mount Bartle Frere’ to the raw, explosive power of finale ‘Flag Hags Must Die’, the band render their songs with astonishing detail and clarity, cramming more melodic ideas into each song than most instrumental bands manage in whole albums. Single ‘You Gotta Crawl…’ unfolds into being with a luminous pattern on 12-string electric guitar, the low hum of Hammond organ, and a delicious brushed drum figure. Delicate Hammond organ runs are gradually stirred in before the song changes direction and builds into an eddying spiral of tumbling melody. Elsewhere, ‘Liberace Fibonacci’ thrills with its awesome organ riff, before taking flight through a series of dizzying twists and turns. And luminous centerpiece ‘No Light No Shade’ features a spine-tingling guest vocal from Jess Cornelius (Teeth & Tongue) and a wonderfully bluesy coda.
