New album: Tacoblaster || Automate

French musician Tom Caussade aka Tacoblaster had a lot of inspiration this year. With his solo project he launched a first LP called Not Now in August, and after the release he immediately worked on a second one that he called Automate. Not only did he write ten damn nice songs twice, but he also did the drums, bass, guitar, synth, and vocals himself. He plays radio-friendly indie pop/rock with a garage feel, songs that aren’t too complex on first hearing but turn out to be well structured on closer inspection, with short but powerful lyrics that are repeated just enough times to get stuck in your head, in combination with appealing hooks. Very fine discovery that deserves a wider audience, and who knows… Anything can happen…

“Wherever you’ll go, take heed of ’em // Whatever you’re going through, anything can happen // Before you know it, anything can happen”

Automate is out now digitally. Add to wantlist: Bandcamp
