Talibam!'s latest lp Puff Up the Volume sees Talibam!
turning their considerable talents towards an album of
synth-pop and boogie-rap. Having been in bands with members of Battles, TV on the Radio and Grizzly Bear,
Talibam! perform with bombast & energy to lift the crowd & raise the roof!


"Talibam! was conceived by synth player Matt Mottel and drummer Kevin Shea in 2003. They have been a hard working band with 25 album releases since '05, 20 tours of Europe since '06, and interdisciplinary collaborations with musicians Rhys Chatham, Alan Wilkinson, Daniel Carter, Jon Irabagon, and Cooper-Moore as well as working along side Karole Armitage's Armitage Gone! Dance company.

They have performed for the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council's River to River Festival, at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Kitchen in NYC, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and other world renown festivals and clubs.
