AMI 029 CD 


This second long-player from BLACK TAJ continues to explore the psychedelic and classic rock templates with which they worked on their self-titled debut, an incendiary mix of self-aware stoner jams (“Spacewash”) and progressive rock time shifting ("Cold Comfort") that recall some of the musicians’ previous projects. For most of the 1990s, DAVE BRYLAWSKI and STEVE POPSON played in (the recently-reunited) POLVO and in the late 1990s, GRANT TENILLE rejoined Brylawski in the primarily folk-inflected IDYLL SWORDS. Rounding out the Taj quartet, TOM ATHERTON proves himself a formidable drummer. While many bands in the current hard rock revival mindlessly ape their idols, Black Taj deliver an intelligent updating of these conventions, and proving again that the twin guitar attack of Thin Lizzy and the muscular riffing of early ZZ Top still has legs. If you’ve been wondering what one-half of Polvo has been up to over the last decade, look no further. Like many of us, Black Taj expands upon the sonic experiments of the 1990s by returning to the records at the center of so many record collections.
