Tacocat, whose album Lost Time jumped 180 spots on the CMJ Radio 200 last week to land at #7, has been delighting fans as well as members of the press with their feminist inclinations, wry pop culture references, and colorful aesthetic. The band can count the staff of Noisey amongst their faithful, and the site even hosted a stream of the album before its April 1 release. The stream is now down, but you can still go here to hear “I Hate the Weekend” and read an insightful and delightful interview with bandmember Bree McKenna.
The band was at SXSW last month, and Austin-adjacent radio station KTSW 88.9 asked reporter / former MD Janelle Abad to talk to the band about their fourth year performing at the citywide festival. According to drummer Lelah Maupin, the band’s heightened profile this year led to an important perk:
“[SXSW is] usually just like tacos, and very hot, and a lot of people, but this is the first time to have a hotel.” Read it all right here.
Experience the Tacocat magic in person at one of these upcoming shows, and help Lost Time reach the top of the charts tomorrow!
