For Your Wednesday Listening Pleasure: “Hologram” by Tacocat

Tacocat: Hologram

Power may be a hologram, but this song is fer realz…

Late last week I heard a song on the radio as I was driving home from the train station and I thought to myself, “Damn, this is frikkin’ catchy!” I asked Google (hands-free, of course) to identify the song, and it said it was “Hologram” by Seattle natives Tacocat.

I looked the song up on the YouTubes and listened to it a few times, and it grew on me more and more with each listen. This is one of the most perfectly-crafted new power-pop songs I’ve heard in years. Take a listen:

Man, this song hits all of my buttons. I love the subtle harmonies that come in during the chorus & bridge. It doesn’t hurt that this is an exemplary entry into my one of my all-time favorite musical genres. I would love to be able to hear this live.

Speaking of which…

Tacocat’s new album, This Mess is a Place (from which “Hologram” comes) was just released, and they’re having an album-release party this Saturday, June 8th, at the Showbox in Seattle!

I would love to go to this show but I’m old, tired, and can’t quite justify the time and expense. Therefore you should go in my place!

P.S. Isn’t that “visualizer” hilarious?
