Takka Takka, 'Migration' (Ernest Jenning Record Co.)

7
Migration
Critical Mass
Label: Ernest Jenning

by Matthew Perpetua

While Takka Takka's debut often sounded like Lou Reed in cuddly, McSweeney's-reading drag, their sophomore effort develops an atmospheric, rhythmically sophisticated sound that recalls the late-'70s work of Peter Gabriel and Brian Eno. Crisp guitar melodies weave a delicate latticework with the taut, understated polyrhythms of drummer Conrad Doucette. And though some tracks recede into the background too easily, upbeat numbers such as "Everybody Say" and "Homebreaker" have an exceptional charm.
