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.
