Taco Tapes

TACO TAPES is the intersection in the musical paths of Ben Walden & Jeremy James Meyer. To quote Walden, "In 2020, humans began to feel more acute symptoms from the Planetary Biome’s affliction. Jeremy James Meyer and I thought it would be only appropriate to invoke the spirit of Garcia And Grisman and create our version of the Pizza Tapes, ushering forth a new generation of plant-guided hippie medicine. Only problem is, I am gluten intolerant, so instead we made the Taco Tapes". 2 LP's (via American Standard Time Records) later, and a 3rd on the way, they have grown, and now perform as a 4-piece band with Dean Shakked on bass, Olaf Ydstie on drums, and, often, additional guest performers. They have held onto their mostly folky roots, while broadening their lens to embrace different, more otherworldly modalities.
