Get hip to Talbot Tagora, the most challenging band in Seattle

Posted by Andrew Matson


Seattle's own Talbot Tagora makes rock that's as intentionally un-beautiful as anything Nirvana or Sonic Youth ever made, yet, in a glorious friction, tries to be catchy. And it is. It's just also underwater/buried/clanging/grinding.

Talbot Tagora's music is for your ears, but always ends up in your face. In the band members' faces, apparently, are fishes.

"Ichthus Hop," off "Lessons in the Woods or a City" out on local label Hardly Art 07/21:
