We Feel Safer at Night We Feel Safer at Night CD (2007)
CD $16.89 Buy It  Details
Takka Takka discography There's an airy simplicity and a reluctance to embrace the heavy on Takka Takka's first full-length album, We Feel Safer at Night, that has encouraged a number of folks to tag them as an indie variant on folk-rock. But if Takka Takka are folkies, it's in the same way Simon & Garfunkel were imagined to be folk -- this is folk-rock from city kids, smart and just a shade streetwise, and though Takka Takka don't seem to know how to embrace cynicism, they understand how to make like they've seen enough not to be surprised, even when the occasional moment of wide-eyed wonder betrays them. While acoustic guitars dominate most of the songs on We Feel Safer at Night and pianos, harmonicas, and muted vocals maintain a sense of musical restraint throughout, leader Gabe Levine knows how to make his songs emotionally felt without ranting or playing to the balcony, and the best moments suggest a spiritual kinship with the third Velvet Underground -- quiet but not meek, delivering the punch without leaving a bruise. While Takka Takka clearly have their sound and attitude worked out, songwriting is still something of a problem, and too many of the melodies on We Feel Safer at Night follow the same sort of gentle mid-tempo pace, so this disc begins to wear out its welcome sooner than it needs to. But there's enough heart, soul, and imagination in We Feel Safer at Night to confirm Takka Takka are on to something, and it's a strong and engaging debut from a band worth watching. ~ Mark Deming Personnel: Janet Wygel (vocals); Tyler Sargent (guitar). Recording information: El Studio Studio (2006-2007); Seaside Lounge Recording Studio, Brooklyn, NY (2006-2007).

Takka Takka songs On 2008's Migration, Takka Takka made the transition from streetwise urban folkies to stylish and cerebral indie rockers, maintaining the breezy '70s pop gait of their debut while simultaneously beefing up their sound with complex percussion, swirling electronics, and staccato, Vampire Weekend-esque guitar noodling. Released in 2012, the aptly titled A.M. Landscapes, ...
Migration Migration CD (2008)
CD $14.99 Buy It  Details
Takka Takka CD discography Takka Takka have clearly done some growing up in the two years that separated their debut album, We Feel Safer at Night, and their second full-length release, 2008's Migration. While there was a charming modesty to their first album that suited Gabe Levine's songs, Migration sounds considerably cleaner, tighter, and more confident, with a greater reliance on keyboards and electronics, a firmer and more adventurous rhythmic pulse, and a newly sophisticated production approach. The folk-rock influence that wove its way ...
