Brass Tax! The free show is going down in honor of the release of the much anticipated debut, "Brass Tax Album."
The creation of LA-based multi-instrumentalist/songwriter Jada Wagensomer, Brass Tax conjoins 60s soul and garage rock with smart, classic storytelling pop inspired by The Kinks, Van Dyke Parks, Randy Newman, Dusty Springfield, and Harry Nilsson, all tied together with a swath of punk spirit.
The songs on "Brass Tax Album" comprise a work of immaculate detail with wide array of instrumentation (saxophone, violin, lap steel, wurlitzer, wind chimes, kazoo, etc) coloring the spaces between Wagensomer's clever, sometimes dark (sometimes humorous) tales. Growing in depth and resonance with each listen, it's an album that sounds epic and spacious but the subject matter brings it somewhere closer, more intimate. The record was released last month on Neurotic Yell Records on both CD and 12" white vinyl. Come on down at 7pm to score a copy and for some in-store fun! See you there.
