May 26th TAL released Family. With the success of Graham's Miracle Fortress, I was curious as to what Family would sound like. The result is more aesthetically pleasing; an intriguing mix of dance/soul/hip-hop samples and Martin's satisfyingly less-aggressive vocals (the man can sing!). Inviting the use of melodies, TAL have matured into crafting songs instead of performance pieces.
Having seen the majority of these tracks performed live, it's evident that there is an element of performance in everything these guys produce. You will never fully understand TAL until you've experienced them live.
Still the best live act I ever seen!
