‘This song is amazing!’ Peter Neagle, 2UIBestow: Irish Artist Website
Tujacques (pronounced ‘two jacks’) draws on the rich tradition of Louisiana rhythm-and-blues with twists of punk, gospel, Americana and alt.country. Louisiana native and long-time Dublin blow-in, Matthew Causey writes the songs with a bayou-born fatalistic humor and a penchant for the theatrical and the tragic. Matthew Nolan (bass), Bryan O’Connell (drums) and Rhiannon Clark (vocals) drive the haunted ballads and propulsive anthems in a set that runs from the tender to the destructive, from playful to dark. Recorded at Windmill Lane Studios and featuring Richie Buckley on saxophone and N.C. Lawlor on pedal steel, the album of original tunes includes ‘Bourbon and Coke’ (a Grindhouse soundtrack homage to Louisiana juke joints), ‘The Highway Back’ (a plaintive alt.country tune) and ‘Take His Place (alt-Gospel, reggae fusion).
