EDITORS’ NOTES

Tacocat know that fun is much more effective than anger, a credo that the Seattle feminist punks stick to on their third album. Their garage rock sound has mellowed a little, but their lyrics are still spunky as ever, railing about periods, the tech bros who ruin their city, bad boyfriends and mansplainers, and singing the praises of X Files lead Dana Scully, horses, night swimming, and on “Leisure Bees,” six dollar wine and wearing pyjamas “'til the end of time.” It's hard to argue with their stump speech.

About Tacocat

Tacocat is a punk-pop quartet from Seattle, Washington that formed in 2007. Drummer Lelah Maupin and guitarist Eric Randall first met while working together at a Safeway grocery store in their native Longview, Washington. After the two relocated to Seattle, they met bassist Bree McKenna and singer Emily Nokes. Bonding over their mutual love for the punk, indie, and riot grrrl music of the '90s, the four members of Tacocat began playing small shows at house parties around town and releasing singles. In late 2010, they released their debut album, Shame Spiral, an upbeat, 13-song album of fun, pop culture-referencing, catchy punk. The Woman's Day EP followed in 2011 and the following year they signed with Sub Pop subsidiary Hardly Art, releasing their second EP, Take Me to Your Dealer. During this time, Tacocat continued to release D.I.Y. singles via their website and Bandcamp page. McKenna was also part of the band Childbirth, with Pony Time's Stacy Peck and Julia Shapiro of Chastity Belt, and they released their debut album in 2013. Tacocat's second LP and Hardly Art debut, NVM, was produced by Seattle rock legend Conrad Uno and arrived in February 2014. After another Childbirth album, 2015's Women's Rights, the band returned with their third album, the Erik Blood-produced Lost Time, in early 2016. ~ Timothy Monger
