Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos. Some Math Rock From Vasa.

And that is just fine, because we’ve got slow cooked food on the menu.

These Slow Cooker Shredded Beef Tacos couldn’t be easier to make. Quickly brown the meat, then toss into the slow cooker with some onion and taco seasoning. The shredded, cooked beef is tossed with some taco sauce and green chiles for added flavor.

I like to offer both hard taco shells and soft tortillas to serve the beef and toppings in.

It is always so nice to have a hot meal waiting for you at home after a busy day. Especially one that children love.

Recipe from Grin And Bake It

I am in awe of the constant stream of fantastic new music that continues to pour out of Scotland. So many different sounds and concepts, but all quality in the music and lyrics and the fun quotient.

Vasa is an instrumental band. For a lyric centric person like myself, the music has to be really good to hold my attention.

How’s this for a wall of sound? Those guitars are completely infectious. I love the build-up to that bass.

I learned something new today, too, while checking out Vasa’s Bandcamp page. One of the tags was Math Rock. Never heard that term before.

Math Rock refers to “a rhythmically complex, often guitar-based, style of experimental rock and indie rock…characterized by complex, atypical rhythmic structures (including irregular stopping and starting), counterpoint, odd time signatures, angular melodies, and extended, often dissonant, chords.” —Wikipedia

Check out Vasa on Facebook and Soundcloud. You can get the music on Bandcamp. The band has an EP set to come out this December.

Cheers!
