about

"Nom de Plume, TaterZandra's sharp debut full-length, is a burning, churning surf of dissonant sound. Nom de Plume is full of surprises that work surprisingly well. TaterZandra's ability to blend these disparate sounds into something that sticks owes both to bandmembers' musical prowess and their readiness to adopt one another's ideas. When speaking with them as a group, it becomes clear how close they all are."

-Gabe Vodicka
Flagpole Magazine


"TaterZandra’s debut release, “Nom De Plume,” is a time warp in a few ways. For starters, there’s the record’s acknowledgement of a post-punk, post-rock heyday, sometime in the ’90s, an era when so-called “indie” rock bands still had teeth, enough guts to point some fingers, even at themselves, and crafted thick slabs of lyrics not in an effort to sound artistic, but to get at something deeper, darker within themselves. “Nom De Plume” hits some of those marks, especially with words that seem directed not at the listener but somewhere within the writer."
