Rebel Sons of Cowboys

by Tango Alpha Tango

Low-down, dirty grooves meet pristine guitars on polished, pop tracks; like if Black Rebel Motorcycle Club went to prom with Wilco. And got lucky.

Album Notes
When did well-played guitars go out of style? Or original, meaningful lyrics? The unforgettable background vocals of the '60's? Or drummers that could keep a beat and swing? In forming Tango Alpha Tango, Nathan Trueb must have asked all of these questions because their music picks up where Dylan, The Beatles, T Rex, and Steely Dan left off. The lyrics are original and contemplative, and so are the melodies, harmonies, progressions, and forms. The chemistry of Tango Alpha Tango comes through the airwaves like veterans who've been touring since birth; however, the band has only been together since 2007. Nathan Trueb has been playing guitar for 13 years and been in touring bands since he was 13 years old, along with his brother Aaron. Nathan's wife Mirabai plays the bass, and comes from a family tree full of bass players and professional musicians. A fellow jazz-school friend of Nathan's, Walker Beckman, plays the drums like a metronome that has a heart and soul. Walker can swing like John Bonham, or sit in for an RJD2 sample any day of the week. All of this musicianship and love for all styles of music forms Tango Alpha Tango's sound. Although they don't touch on every genre, they focus on a few. From country to folk, and rock n' roll to pop. They've got a sound that won't be a secret for very long.

Steve Mills

There are no words that will suffice. Nathan brings to mind the chops of Skunk Baxter, yes, but he takes it to a new level. There is a new animal afoot in this band, and it shouldn't be taken lightly.

From his lightest touches to the echoes of 10CC, Nathan has brought a new level to the Portland scene, and this band is not to be take lightly.


Love you guys!
This is by far one of the very best albums I have ever had the pleasure of listening to, and your live shows are amazing to watch! Its easy to see that you guys pour your heart and soul into your music. Love you!


Diverse, Stylistic, and Damn Good
When thinking of this album, words like "deep," "meaningful," and "awesome" come to mind. Indeed, all three of those things are present in Tango Alpha Tango's debut album, but there is also so much more. Nathan's voice is fantastic, being both powerful and intimate, very much like his guitar work. A number of genres are explored in each track, but the delivery is extraordinarily tactful. A damn good album, and a must buy.
