Rookie Mag and The AV Club Love Tacocat; Their New Album is CMJ’s Top Mover

Rookie Mag has Tacocat‘s video for Lost Time‘s opening track, “Dana Katherine Scully,” along with an interview with bandleader Emily Nokes. The track is a tribute to the X-Files character, who Nokes refers to as “a really interesting feminist icon from the 1990s… She’s… the only voice of reason amongst these hard-science men in these fields of law enforcement and science.” Watch the joyful, colorful, and cheeky clip, in which Nokes invokes Scully and leads multiple odd dances, right here or below.

Though Tacocat is an undoubtedly feminist group that is undeniably influenced by riot grrl forebears like Bikini Kill, the AV Club wrote in a recent review that the band is “too fun for forced classifications.” Lost Time, writes the site, is “first and foremost a peppy, easy-going surf-punk record about science fiction, unexpected breakups, birth control, the apocalypse, and other assorted topics” with songs that are “instantly catchy [and] fuller in sound than their previous work.” Read the review here.

Lost Time was the biggest mover at CMJ this week, jumping 180 spots to #7 after debuting at #187 last week. Celebrate with the band at one of these high-energy shows happening throughout the US!
