Tango Alpha Tango, Duke Evers, Killer Workout

  • Tango Alpha Tango

    Tango Alpha Tango

    Alternative Rock

    Tango Alpha Tango isn't the band it once was. The tried-and-true riffage and raw psychedelia, once the cornerstones of singer-guitarist Nathan Trueb's particular brand of blues, have recently given way to a more pop-friendly kind of rock, as evident on the band's latest release, White Sugar. Songs like "I Gotta Girl" and the title track showcase familiar distortion and chugging electric guitar, though the rest are more polished and subdued. "People," for instance, has a carnivalesque design that banks on a lofty chorus and drummer Joey Harmon's fills, while "Lonely" takes a more soulful approach to heartbreak before turning to chiming guitars and an accepting mentality that echos Tom Petty's comeback album, Wildflowers. Trueb's bright guitar work is tighter than ever throughout, lined with fluttering bits of jazz and improvisation that build upon his subtle interplay with his wife, Mirabai, and Harmon. "I'll take you anyway I please/You might be the last thing that I need," he sings over the spare backdrop and gently plucked guitar of "Gasoline." He might be getting softer, but his music is better for it.

    Duke Evers

    Pop

    When the chatter of the music biz got a little too loud for Seattle-based one-two punch Duke Evers (a moniker pinched from an intriguing character in the Rocky trilogy), the rock n’ roll duo simply turned up the amps and pounded harder on the drums. You can’t begin to please the suits if you can’t even hear their pleas.
     
    This exhilarating outburst against the industry is captured on Duke Evers’ sophomore album, Dreams And Desires That Are Common To Youth. Here, the pair place youthful f@#&-you passion above all, and come out swinging with an uncompromising collection of imaginatively-arranged, and infectiously-catchy rock n’ roll.
     
    When the twosome pick up instruments, the artistic flow is fiery, immediate, and effortless. Together, the duo wind through rugged blues-rock, adventurous and trippy textural moments, dirge-y riffage, dance-y grooves, and desert-rock passages. Duke Evers counts heavyweights such as Led Zeppelin, Tame Impala, and Queens Of The Stone Age as formative influences.
     
    Previously, the pair has issued one full-length, and an EP. Thus far, its output has been praised by Seattle Music Insider, Seattle Music News, and Electric Sloth.com. Duke Evers has performed locally at the famed The Crocodile and the Tractor Tavern; performed at CMJ in New York; and appeared at events such as Volume Fest, Capitol Hill Block Party, Bumbershoot, Upstream Music Festival, Fisherman’s Village Music Festival, and Botanique Festival in Bologna, Italy. In addition, the band has shared stages with Portugal The Man, Mudhoney, Alex Clare, Austin Jenckes, White Buffalo, Leighton Meester, My Goodness, and Bright Light Social Hour, among others.
     
    Duke Evers’ album title is both playful and sincere. Kyle and Josh are now living the dreams and desires alluded to in the name. They’re taking the reins on their career, they’re self-releasing their music, and the guys are being unrelenting in following their artistic desires. Josh concludes: “It was liberating to hold the test pressing of this album because we did fulfill these desires—we made a record that sounds awesome and is true to ourselves.”

    Killer Workout

    Indie Rock

    Killer Workout is a band from Seattle. We used to be The West but now we’re not.

    Our music is a blend of New Wave dance music and modern indie/alternative, which means you are equally as likely to dance as you are to have deep thoughts about your feelings or whatever. We don’t make the rules.

    Our new EP is called “A Matter of Style,” and it’s coming out on March 18th. We're releasing it as Killer Workout, but you can still get the two LPs and two EPs we made when we were The West. They are available on Spotify, Bandcamp, iTunes, Amazon, etc.

    Come watch us play sometime.
