      On their third studio album Sir Nebula, TAUK tap into their singular chemistry to elevate and expand theirall-instrumental blend of funk, hip-hop, progressive rock, and jazz. Revealing both their refined musicalityand unbridled creativity, the Oyster Bay, New York-bred rock-fusion four-piece (guitarist Matt Jalbert,bassist Charlie Dolan, keyboardist/organist Alric A.C. Carter, and drummer Isaac Teel) push into newsonic terrain and build entire worlds within each richly textured soundscape.From the hazy atmospherics of Times Up and soaring riffs of Program Select to the urgent rhythms ofShenanigans and sprawling melodies of Where You Are, Sir Nebula finds TAUK introducing acosmically inspired element to their music. The album ended up taking on a more ambient kind of vibethan anything weve done beforetheres a spaciness in the songs that lets you get lost in the sound,says Dolan. And while the album is endlessly hypnotic, TAUK also deliver the dynamic tension-and-release jams that have helped earn them a devoted following while drawing critical acclaim (theWashington Post, for one, praised TAUK for creating a hard-charging, often melodic fusion thatthanksto a penchant for improvoffers limitless possibilities).As with their past four releases, TAUK created Sir Nebula in collaboration with Grammy Award-winningproducer/mixer/engineer Robert Carranza (The Mars Volta, Ozomatli, Jack Johnson, Taj Mahal). But in adeparture from their previous work, the band made the album in one concentrated period rather thanspacing the recording sessions out in between tours. Holing up at the Solar Powered Plastic Plant in LosAngeles, often pulling 12-hour workdays, TAUK ultimately found the revamped recording process hugelybeneficial. Everything just happened so naturally this time around, says Jalbert. I cant think of onemoment where it felt like anything was forced. We were all just completely focused and in the samemindset, which made it this incredibly fun and smooth experience.
