The best kept secret in music


"Dallas Observer"

..."ain't no damned good"... ..."but that doesn't mean you can't like them. There's nothing criminal about having guilty one of those records that sneaks up on you...but it's innocuously likable in a catchy sort of way, dance music made for pop radio with a shelf life of 37 seconds." - Robert Wilonsky

"The Music Paper"

This CD features slick, dark techno-rock that insinuates itself into your psyche with its driving dance beats and strong, cool vocals (by keyboardist Kaila brasell, who also co-wrote all but one of the tunes on the disc). Heavy synthesizers and futuristic guitars drive this record, especially in "Therapy," a paranoid excursion into the world of the psychiatrist's couch. The bittersweet flamenco-style guitar featured in "En Route" -- along with lyrics like "I can't drown the thought of you/When I smell you in the wind" -- make this one of the most engaging tracks on the CD. All-around, a very high-caliber, professional effort. - RC


Triprocket offers a blend of blissed-out House, deep-space symphonic Trance, and dark Trip- Hop. Kaila Brasell adds husky, mournful, alto vocals over rainy-day grooves embellished by searing lead guitar. -Noah - Noah


..."a techno-rock band with a monster groove"... Blast off with Triprocket, a techno-rock band with a monster groove. Here is one local band with a unique sound. They remind me of Susan Vega gone electronic... It's good to hear a female vocalist that doesn't scream & whine like all those Alanis-like frontwomen. Kaila Brasell has got her own voice that needs to be heard. The programmer , Bobby R is very talented. There aren't very many good programmers out in Dallas, but he is one of the few. I found myself soet of hypnotised by track 5. En Rount really takes you away.

"MTV News"

..."most innovative sound in Dallas"... ..."got a reception from the audience that not many bands were getting, since people actually danced. They're great live performers!...I say, go triprocket."

Feeling a bit camera shy


The talent in Triprocket is noteworthy. Kaila Brasell’s (writer, lead vocals, keys, & guitar) strong onstage performance and emotional vocal delivery earned her a nomination as Female Artist of the Year by Bobby R directs Triprocket’s musical vision, and is responsible the majority of the group’s remixes, while achieving a long list of outside production and remix credits in diverse genres. Matt Tinonga's uses the most current drum technology to allow him to faithfully duplicate the recorded material live. He is an impeccable groovemaster, but still manages to push the rhythmic boundaries. John Inman’s guitar artistry and discipline are refreshing compliments to Triprocket's music. Meanwhile, he is still active as a solo artist with two albums to his credit.

Numerous Triprocket songs have been used on MTV’s Real World, Road Rules, and Dragon Ball Z soundtracks. They’ve wowed crowds with their conference performances at NEMO, ATLANTIS, ROCKRGRL, & WMC. They were semi-finalists in Musician’s Best Unsigned Band Contest, and the winner of Best Dance Band at the Dallas Observer Music Awards.

Each of the members’ musical backgrounds play a large role in their sound. Triprocket’s comparisons to Garbage are well-founded, as Kaila, Bobby, Matt, and John all share that common thread of influence. Kaila also cites Aimee Mann, Elvis Costello, Sarah McLachlan, Matthew Sweet, and Kate Bush for her influences. Bobby gathers inspiration from his love for Brit-pop bands such as Supergrass, Charlatans UK, Boo Radleys, XTC, Blur, and Ash, to electronic artists as BT, Curve, Fatboy Slim, Bjork, Groove Armada, Felix Da Housecat, Daft Punk, and Basement Jaxx. Matt has an appreciation for club dance music and alternative rock, while John revels in the 80’s guitar rock from the likes of Journey and Def Leppard, along with progressive jazz and fusion.

What assembles from this is a melodic loopy beat, with equal amounts of edgy guitar and dreamy synth textures. Complete with catchy vocal hooks and poignant lyrics.
