Listen to tracks from Recess on BandcampRecess

Released 2003, MOLI01

Our first “full studio” release, and home to some of our most requested original tunes, including “The Kiss”, “On Our Own”, and “Never Really Meant to Be”. This was the first album we all got really excited about!

Successfully combining the best elements of Buddy Holly with the vocal harmonies of the Everly Brothers. Bassist Craig Evans, whose voice often recalls the Mavericks’ Raul Malo, and guitarist Brad Tucker, whose clever chord changes on his acoustic guitar make the ear do double-takes, harmonize with ’50s panache.”

Drawing from the well of rootsy, Americana pop epitomized by the light twang of Bakersfield-style country (Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam) and the ambitious arrangements and heavenly tenor of Roy Orbison era Nashville, the Taters’ latest release shines!
