After a summer of appearances at some of America's largest music festivals and a recent sold-out performance at Atlanta's Terminal West, the Oyster Bay, New York quartet TAUK is proud to announce the release of their new dual-disc album, HEADROOM. Known for their explosive live performances, the album showcases tracks from the heavy instrumental rock-fusion onslaught recorded during their 2015 non-stop touring schedule. This fall, TAUK continue their cross-country trek in support of HEADROOM with dates across the US (see below for a full list of performances).
HEADROOM, mixed by Grammy-winning producer Robert Carranza (Mars Volta, Jack Johnson) features 16 hard-hitting technically inspired instrumental tracks including a jam-rendition of Nirvana's classic "In Bloom". The album seamlessly blends a mix of transcendent melodic rock, fusion, funk, progressive rock, hip hop and jazz into a two-disc exhibition of hand selected performances recorded at The NorVa (Norfolk, VA), The National (Richmond, VA), The Madison Theater (Covington, KY), The Ritz (Raleigh, NC), Iron Works (Buffalo, NY), The Southern (Charlottesville, VA), AURA Music Festival (Live Oak, FL), and Terminal West (Atlanta, GA).

"Therapy" is the ninth studio album by The New Mastersounds, the now multi-national funk band originally from Leeds/England. With a new perspective in sound and vision, Eddie Roberts (Guitar), Simon Allen (Drums), Joe Tatton (Keyboards) and Pete Shand (Bass) recorded 12 fresh tracks in Denver/Colorado USA, aiming for a forward thinking sound mixing vintage funk with raw soul, smart jazz and original disco.

"Music and the creation of music has always been my therapy," says Eddie Roberts. "It has been a way of working through ideas, feelings, frustrations. In creating music, especially instrumental music, it is an incredible outlet for pent-up emotions. People often tell me how much energy they draw from our music, often in a therapeutic way. I find the idea incredible that from my feelings, turned into music, that same music then generates feelings in the listener. It is an exchange much like the physics of music itself: from a string vibration into an electrical signal, and back from electrical signal into vibrating sound waves. I hope that this album will be as therapeutic and valuable to the listener as it was to me creating it."

On "Therapy" The New Mastersounds introduce a couple of new faces. "I met Kim Dawson on Jam Cruise last year when she performed as part of my 'super jam'. We didn't have time to get to know each other at that point, but subsequently through various shows and social situations in Denver, where she lives, we got to know each other well and I felt that she understood and shared my vision of music. 'I Want You To Stay' was a lyrical sketch I had and she helped and co-wrote with me to make some sense of what I was trying to say. 'Soul Sista' was a poem she had written recently and, as the backing track was inspired by the Lyn Collins/James Brown track ... I thought her message was a very appropriate fit. Ryan Zoidis has been a friend for a few years through festivals and musical collaborations performing with Lettuce. When 'Slow Down' called for a Maceo-esque solo he was the obvious choice and nailed it!"

The Hip Abduction mixes reggae, rock, and African traditions to create their own unique sound. With heavy emphasis placed on African stringed instruments (kora, ngoni), dub-reggae-inspired bass lines, and funky afro-beat percussion, the band's high-energy performances have won them a loyal statewide following. Formed on the gulf coast of Florida in 2009, The Hip Abduction has quickly grown from just a few African instrument playing surfers to a full-blown 7-piece reggae powerhouse.

The sophomore album produced by Michael Goldwasser (The Green, Matisyahu) finds The Hip Abduction crafting a solid American reggae album, along with the vintage-hued Afrobeat with tight brass, brawny elastic low-end grooves, and percussive-fueled rhythms.

Voted by HGMN's Staff as the 2013 Studio Album of the Year!
