CADALLACA Introducing Cadallaca

When Cadallaca singer/guitarist Corin Tucker says her band is all about "drama," she's not referring to the drama as practiced by her other band, the critically acclaimed punk-rockers Sleater-Kinney. When she performs with that group, Tucker's songs are about life-and-death emotions (and though they don't detail the lives of gangstas, they actually approach "drama" as people like Master P and Tupac use the word, in terms of gut-wrenching, heart-breaking intensity). Cadallaca proffers "drama" in a vein closer to that of community theatre. Just how well listeners take to Cadallaca will depend in part on their appreciation for Dougher's haunting 60's style Farrsa organ; it envelops everything in its hum, as well as kitchy American punk.. At times, you can almost feel the vocals bouncing up against the studio walls. Cadallaca wash over the listener like a gray day with plenty of rain, the kind where one can marvel for hours on end at drops running down the window, and you keep thinking you hear a mouse.
