Taiga Blues (1 Albums, 1 Tracks)
- Carsten Mandt
- Michael Gallagher
Taiga Blues began as a side project for guitarist Carsten Mandt to explore musical interests in post rock, electronica and jazz. Over time the side project grew, leading to releases on a number of netlabels such as Legoego.
In the second half of 2006, Carsten was eventually joined by guitarist/trumpet player Michael Gallagher and bassist Tim Craig and together they released their debut album Intricacies early in 2008 on the My Formica Table netlabel, showcasing the band’s knack for seamlessly blending electronic and live instrumentation, composed and improvised elements, resulting in deceptively simple yet multi-layered, evocative music.
In 2009, the band (well, duo to be precise, since Tim’s departure) released two EPs on Wise Owl Records, “Ausklang” and “A minor shunt with common sense”, moving towards a more organic sound with more subtle electronic elements and a stronger jazz influence than before.
