Sharing some great music from a fun and windy town called Chicago, from one of my best buddies known as, Jay Montana, to get this weekend going! Jay and I met while taking improv classes at Second City, good thing he had music to fall back on. Just kidding, he is hilarious, a great guy, and he’s super talented on the guitar.
In addition to Jay’s other music ventures, he is a member of the band Tautologic. Their newest album, Wheels Fall Off, was released on April 2nd of this year. As of April 29th the album was #8 on the Relix/Jambands.com radio chart and is getting solid reviews.
Check out this glowing review from Hans Werksman at Here Comes the Flood:
“Few albums come full circle without dropping the ball a few times along the way, but Wheels Fall Off by Chicago based progressive art rock sextet Tautologic is one of them. After a short intro/nursery rhyme featuring the band’s songwriter Ethan Sellers kids they are off for a visit to a musical candy store, touching base with ska (Memo To Yourself), Zappa-esque instrumentals (Rocket Surgery) and breakneck speed folk (Fat, Dumb, and Happy, High School Reunion). Tautologic cater to fans from so many genres that it could have turned into a muddy, faceless mess, but they are able to get to the core and add a smathering of bells and whistles that lets each track shine like the queen of the prom. Whether it is funky disco (Covered In Grit) or a late night jazzy torch song (Summer, 1995), this band really has both the stamina and the skills ‘to keep driving ’til the Wheels Fall Off.'”
