Tajak (Mexico) + Support on Friday 14th September 2018
Bassist Coco Badán and guitarist Carlos Arias hail from Ensenada, Baja California while drummer Álvaro Castro is originally from La Paz, Baja California Sur. However, the three members met when all of them relocated to Mexico City to pursue music. Since then, Tajak has become one of the most intense live presence in the country, playing improv-based songs full of out of this world effects, hypnotic krautrock influences and frenetic rocking out moments.
Amsterdam 211 was released in January 2017
Titled after the place where it was born, Amsterdam 211 is the language that Tajak has worked around their short existence as a trio, looking for forms and textures in the way the band relates to its surroundings and goes beyond a genre or a sound movement, this new work is the compilation of different genres that agglomerated in this plate, seem to gradually generate their own language.
As adventurous as this may sound, the band creates tense and lysergic atmospheres based on their own influences, which denote at the first listen, as it is the case of tracks like 'Blind Inside (El 20 que me debes)' that draws a blurred and corrosive path through spaces that the band did not used to travel before, or the case of 'Wasn’t', a song that usually leaves the mold to fade the canvas where the band used to paint before.
