Penelope Trappes
Penelope Two

Penelope Two: the second solo album from Penelope Trappes (also of The Golden Filter and Priscilla Sharp). The Trappes sound is slick and noirish electronic shoegaze pop, all slow and cinematic. Trappes’ voice sets the tone with its cold cool: this album will likely do great things for Julee Cruise fans. Its released by Houndstooth.

Penelope Trappes
Carry Me

Run the Trappes! The Penelope Trappes, to be precise. Having released her acclaimed debut LP Penelope One on Optimo last year, Trappes is now hot-footing it over to Houndstooth for the follow-up. To tide people over before Penelope Two (seems she’s got a thing going there) Trappes is releasing this 7”. It contains album track ‘Carry Me’ and exclusive tune ‘I Can Hear You…’. The former is a mournful, syrup-slow ballad in the Grouper vein; the latter a Gothic Colin Newman tribute. Carry Me also comes with a CD on which Abul Mogard turns the title track into a reverberant drone.

Penelope Trappes
Penelope One

Inspired by Scott Walker and This Mortal Coil, Penelope Trappes rented a small studio in London and set about making an album that reflected the boldness of those artists. Mainly using just piano, voice and effects, Trappes has produced the sort of emotionally vulnerable music she describes as free, empowered and naked.
