The Gig Week – Tajdar Junaid + Stuck In November
Tajdar Junaid is a Multi-instrumentalist, Songwriter, Composer, Producer in love with all good honest forms of Art. Taj's debut album What Colour Is Your Raindrop is a personal photograph of all the sights and sounds that has shaped him. From the gaps between notes of Erik Satie to the wail of Albert King, from the serenity of Ustad Ali Akbar Khan to the innocence of Iranian cinema, this debut album is his journey through all of them.
Gentle and savage by turns, Stuck In November sounds like the soundtrack to watching a sped-up film of flowers opening up. Most music contrived from rock, or pop, following a set number of bars, and basic cheesy chord changes, guitar solos and boring vocal melodies with meaningless lyrics, probably caused the sound of this band, because we’d like to do anything far from that. You might feel a tingle in parts of your brain, you never knew were there to begin with.
