A.V. Club

It’s all just a smidge bigger and just a drop deeper, but enough to complete the 90-percent-baked approach of NVM.

The Skinny

Lost Time is such an enjoyable half-hour you’ll barely worry about favourites. Melody, thy name be Tacocat.


Adding more noise and toughness to their sound on Lost Time was a genius move, taking an already very good band and pointing it toward greatness, or at the very least helping Tacocat make one of the most fun punk-pop albums around.


There's something pure about Tacocat, which comes across throughout Lost Time. The band describe themselves as being best friends, and this sense of joy and excitement is palpable throughout.

Under The Radar

The music is fantastic, catchy, unpretentious power-pop. Once its 32 minutes are up, you'll likely want to spin it again.

The Line of Best Fit

Lost Time is Tacocat’s biggest accomplishment to date - 27 minutes of bubblegum pop that doesn’t lose its taste.

Rolling Stone
These brief, conversational songs fly by like text messages to a best friend – emoji-laden missives about girl power, cats, aliens, weed and pop-culture.

Lost Time is the perfect record to put on when you’re day drinking and have fallen down the rabbit hole of YouTube seeking out ‘90s NBA highlights and commercials.

Consequence of Sound

Tacocat so clearly thrive in the realm of the amusing and the ironic, and it would make no sense for them to turn their backs on that. Instead, they continue to work out straightforward messages in their silly statements. 


Tacocat's third album loses some of the brightness that helped make their pointed cultural critiques sound so impossibly fun.


Their creative decisions, and their less-than-creative ones, are all surefire crowd pleasers. Familiar structures and shout-along lyrics about popular topics make for a fun show.

Reseña | Crítica en Youtube:


"Iré al grano. Lost Time es divertidísimo. Desde sus letras que critican la mala comunicación humana con la llegada de la mensajería instantánea, lo insoportable que puede ser el primer día de la menstruación y lo pésimo que son los hombres para dar explicaciones.

En cuanto su música, todo se trata de desenfadadas composiciones en las que esta banda solo ... read more

Back in 2014, Seattle pop-punk quartet Tacocat successfully avoided the dreaded sophomore slump in stellar fashion with the bubbly, anarchistic NVM. Fast forward to the present and it seems as though Lost Time, their third full-length release, and second for Hardly Art, will be the record to see the band capture nationwide attention within the indie rock world. Already undisputed champions of a feminist pop-punk underground scene which features both established and up-and-coming acts such as La ... read more
