We are fortunate enough to have been in the right place a the right time to provide us the opportunity to be whatever is before early adopters regarding instrumental outfit, TAUK. Having been writing and listening to these guys since our days at HGMN and having been witness to their evolution has been a pleasure and we wouldn't be lying if we told you, we're not surprised. Upon first sound of Homunculus, you knew that this quartet had something special; tangible, with depth and purporse. Fast forward a few years later, things couldn't be any better for TAUK as well as us STAUKERS as we've come to see TAUK form a relationship with another of our favorite bands Umphrey's McGee. So much so that they've often performed together on several occasions as TAUKing McGee. If you're unaware of how gnarly of a combination that is, please watch the video above. Wait, first listen to "Mindshift" on its own, then watch the TAUKing McGee performance of "Mindshift" early last year in Albany, NY. So much yes.
