THE REDS end a 10-year hiatus with the release of their brand NEW single “HIGH POINT” ► https://bit.ly/2DWjmBu

“High Point” by The Reds was written and produced by original founding members Rick Shaffer and Bruce Cohen.  With this 2019 single release The Reds return with their signature raw, hypnotic and atmospheric definitive spirit.  Recorded in Miami, the duo created a ferocious and relentless attack of sound.  The metallic fragmented guitars, dense electronic textures, tribal groove and haunting world-weary vocals give the listener a rocking, powerful and absorbing tune to grab onto.

Tarock Music Releases Rick Shaffer’s 9th Solo Album “Creatures Of Impulse”

Tarock Music releases Creatures Of Impulse, the ninth solo album by Rick Shaffer, that’s exactly what a garage blues record should sound like. Recorded in a ramshackle Como, Mississippi studio by a group of musicians playing together in a room, with sounds bleeding into each other, production atmospherics of shakers, tambourines and spoons adding movement to straightforward backbeats. There’s looseness, a human element that is missing from many of the over-produced music that’s released today.

Tarock Music Releases Rick Shaffer’s 8th Solo Album

Rick Shaffer’s eighth solo album, STOLEN MOMENTS, was inspired by the concept that there are no guarantees or promises in life, and every minute he spends writing and recording is precious time.  The result is an album packed with low-tech wallop, bursting energy and immediacy.  The production resembles The Stooges “Fun House” and is a proto-garage raver to end all garage ravers.

Tarock Music Releases New Rick Shaffer Video • SO TIRED

JitterbugShake_FrontWhen Rick Shaffer wanted a fast come-at-you video for “So Tired” he immediately enlisted the expertise of British artist/director, Peter McAdam, who previously took the reins on two of Shaffer’s solo videos, and two for his band, The Reds®.

The “So Tired” visuals encapsulate the feeling of being overloaded by a modern world that continually bombards us with text, sound and images.  McAdam, used his extraordinary software creation called, iCoda — a sound interactive image blender — to express the chaos of the inner mind.  McAdam’s unique application works by loading in numerous images that are then activated by amplitude and duration of the music to create a random animated mash-up.

For the “So Tired” video McAdam resurrected his alternate being, Johnny Satan, to choreograph and dance to the music.  Satan becomes a symbol for going with the flow by dancing and embracing chaos, and/or allowing anger to release our inner demon and the secret inside scream heard only by the screamer.
