Roadburn / Burning World Mailorder
First release of the Roadburn Redux 2021 festival that was held 100% online to much applaus
TAU will be back at Roadburn 2022 to play in front of an actual live audience
This album and cd include the whole set played at Roadburn Redux and 3 tracks from a session they played in Dublin in December 2020.
About TAU: Tau is the collective project formed by Shaun Mulrooney who has been a member of Dead Skeletons and invisible man with Berlin ‘kraut’ rockers Camera over the last 4 years. The music has been inspired by the shamanic experience and spending time with indigenous.
Tau & the Drones of Praise was already slated to appear at the cancelled Roadburn Festival 2020, participated in Roadburn Redux back in April, helping to tide us over in yet another year with no physical edition of the festival. Their hypnotic neo-folk performance featured an appearance from Clannad’s Pól Brennan, and dived headfirst into their back catalogue of psychedelic delights. No-one could accuse them of phoning it in.
Roadburn comments: “We’re thrilled to announce that this acid-tinged psych troupe will be packing up and heading to Tilburg in April, led by Dubliner Sean Mulrooney. Bringing along a suitcase full of extrasensory delights and magic potions, no doubt, Tau & the Drones of Praise will be setting up shop and handing out feel good vibes like nobody’s business. Expect to leave this earthly plane and head out on a meditative voyage of sonic discovery – Sean will be our guide through shamanic experimentalism, folk-led flourishes and far out lysergic luminance.
Having already wowed the crowds at highly regarded festivals throughout Europe, such as Liverpool Psych Fest and Le Guess Who? we’re beyond excited to be one of the first stops on their return to the live stage. Expectations are high!”
