TARENTEL – home ruckus : double-sided airVINYL 7'' (black)type records2007
‘Home Ruckus : Double-Sided Air’ is the latest emission from San Francisco’s shape-shifting Post Post Rockers Tarentel and is one of their most thoughtful moments to date. With references to the clattering percussion of Chris Corsano, the droning ambience of Mirror or Stars of the Lid and the almost spiritual improv of Sunburned Hand of the Man the band have totally sidestepped their previous sound and found a fresh and desperately involving voice. Made up of two tracks, both part of one all-encompassing whole these are home-recorded gems, improvised without being directionless and experimental without losing sight of the fact that people might want to listen to the music. Strictly limited to 500 copies, this is the perfect follow-up to the band’s long-sold out Home Ruckus LP on the Root Strata label, and is sure to be snapped up by eager fans very quickly. Cosmic!
