Takka Takka

A warm mix of folk-inspired songwriting and indie rock and roll instrumentation characterizes the music of Brooklyn’s Takka Takka, who formed in 2004 after bandleader Gabe Levine (vocals, key pad, acoustic guitar) relocated to NY from Tx. The band’s early lineup also included drummer Conrad Doucette, bassist J.P. Jones (changed by Grady Jurrens in 2006), and guitarist Damion Jurrens (changed by Rene Planchon and Drew Thurlow in July 2007). After documenting the debut record We Experience Safer during the night in the band’s indigenous Brooklyn, Takka Takka spent the last mentioned half of 2006 touring alongside indie rock and roll upstarts Clap THE HANDS State Yeah. Jones still left the music group upon their go back to NY and was changed by Damion’s sibling, bassist Grady Jurrens. The re-formed music group inserted Brooklyn’s Seaside Lounge to record a follow-up to its self-issued debut; the causing EP, Chat Faster, premiered in early 2007. Displays in the U.K. and a high-profile established on the 2007 South by Southwest celebration heightened the band’s profile, and Ernest Jenning Documenting Co. agreed upon Takka Takka that Might. A re-release of We Experience Safer during the night — packed alongside the three-song Chat Faster — adopted in Sept. Takka Takka came back using its sophomore work, Migration, in 2008.
