Tacky Annie | Andy Cook (Indie Rock/Alternative) $8
Thursday, June 21 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Both Rachelle LaNae and Andrew Frederick studied music formally receiving a degree in performance. Steeped heavily in classical music Rachelle’s training starkly contrasts that of Andrew’s which lives in the realm of jazz and groove oriented music. In the fall of 2017 by combining these two worlds with their unabashed appreciation for folk and pop music they began their musical relationship and Tacky Annie was born. If you like Sylvan Esso, Phantogram, Lucius, or Julia Michaels there may be something for you in Tacky Annie.
What’s a man, anyway? It’s a question at the center of Andy Cook’s new EP Modern Man—a 22-minute indie rock ride that hints at nostalgia with jangly guitars, articulate synth lines, and driving percussion, all as a vehicle for digging into life in this hyper-digital age.
Produced by Jeremy Ylvisaker (HALEY, Alpha Consumer, Andrew Bird) and recorded live to tape at Pachyderm Studio in Cannon Falls, Minnesota, Modern Man follows on Cook’s In Space EP (2017) and pulls on a range of influences including 60’s surf, 80’s pop and contemporary indie rock.
As it looks back musically, Modern Man takes a hard look at the present in its lyric-driven, sonically-rich landscape. “We’re living in a wicked world, where nobody believes anything they’ve heard…just a picture of a pretty face, with lonely eyes and a made-up grace,” we hear over a bouncing guitar line in the track Swirl—a song reminiscent of Real Estate or Kurt Vile, and that oscillates between pessimism of social media-curated life, and optimism that we can be happy in our own shoes.
