Ever wondered what Radiohead’s Thom Yorke might sound like singing atmospheric folk ballads? Austin’s Taft Mashburn aims to find out along with the help of bassist, Sam Pankey, and percussionist, Josh Halpern. Together, the trio crafts beautiful acoustic soundscapes for Taft’s distinctive vocal style. Instead of sliding in between or sitting on top of the melody Taft inextricably weaves his voice into the grooves of a song making it an integral instrument in the composition. Taft released its most recent album TDNP last June and recently returned from a West coast tour. The band plays a FREE WEEK show on Saturday, January 6 at The Swan Dive. Scroll down to hear Taft’s recent performance for John Aielli in Studio 1A!
