Ladies and Gentlemen, please find within the singles released by Tacachale Chamber Orchestra in the Year of Our Lord, 2016. All tracks recorded at Cuscowilla Conservatory in Gainesville, Florida.
Patience Is a Disability EP
Four tracks that feature Beastie Boysesque breakbeats, Brian Mayesque lead guitar harmonies, and Morrisseyesque preachiness. What the hell else do you want?
“Factory Farm” is a Beatlesque number that descends into a Beach Boys vs. Black Sabbath interlude. More importantly, the lyrics address, which would perhaps make Morrissey mildly proud, address the horrors faced by animals within factory farms every Goddamned day. Don’t eat mass-produced meat; do listen to this catchy-assed song.
I Don’t Want a Hurricane
“I Don’t Want a Hurricane” lampoons the special type of people who move to hurricane zones like Florida and then cry and moan when a hurricane comes along. The recording features giddy mandolin, plunky banjo, and swirling synths bouncing along over a swinging 6/8, creating a shanty-like feel, appropriate for the nautical topic.
Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram (Lakshmanacharya/Paluskar)
“Raghupati Raghav Raja Ram” is a Hindu spiritual song, with ancient lyrics by Lakshmanacharya and 20th Century melodies by Vishnu Digambar Paluskar. The song was popularized by none other than the Mahatma himself, Mohandas Gandhi. Karishma D. Kumar is an Indian-American-by-way-of-Guyana singer with years of experience performing Hindu songs, both sacred and popular. Tacachale Chamber Orchestra is the world’s most precious band. Put them all together and you get something pretty boss.
lyrics by Lakshmanacharya/music by Vishnu Digambar Paluskar
