about

TaughtMe's songs are solemn and restless. Vows or confessions are sung amidst a canvas of shifting instrumentation and unexpected sounds. Their 3rd album, "Lady", is more sparse an offering than those prior, with the narrator stepping further into the foreground as the accompaniment weaves or bobs behind him. "Lady" has been said to resemble a children's 'pop-up' book and there is indeed a sense of youthful wonder throughout. But the album does not remain buoyant, and several times it succombs to melancholy and a weariness that begs.

Track Name: Invocation
May some worn fist clobber me, knocking me down
rough me up, tip me over
let it settle me down
may so many hard shadows muscle me in on myself
may it pinch
settle me down
may I find bubbling up pockets of laughter anyway
may I take my beating is the same spaces that I play
and may playing make shallow (as in each sweet other time) what I had wanted it to be
