The Tarka Groove ExperimentTarka Groove Experiment EP
Label: Consequence Records
Release Date: July 3, 2006

Who?

A British collective playing soulful rock n’ roll with a tendency to get funky. The four songs on this EP/single take the listener through many decades, (60’s-present) and many influences (The Beatles and Ben Harper).

How Is It?

The Tarka Groove Experiment make some chill music. Closer “Two Day Change” sums things up pretty well. James Fender’s smooth tenor leads while a female chorus adds soothing “ahhh’s”. The guitarists are content with riffs that astound without making things too complicated. Percussion tends to become bland, but cameo instruments (is that Seth Green?) such as the piano, strings, and electronic effects more than pick up the slack. The formula is clear, yet allows plenty of room for each song to sound just as creative as the last. Special Note: squares need not apply.


Recommend If You Like: The Beatles, Ben Harper, salvia, The Who, reflecting on the past
