After receiving a fantastic sampler from relatively new London label Trestle Records I’ve been champing at the bit to say a few words about one of these new releases, I’m thrilled to bits to get my hands on this second full length from Tout cuz it’s right up my street. The label itself is aimed specifically at experimental instrumental music of many different varieties, there’s minimal ambient, electronica, math-rock and neo-classical, Tout are of the folk tinged post-rock persuasion, there’s all sorts of elements to their sound with a little Rachels here and a sprinkle of State River Widening there and I’m definitely reminded of Tara Jane O’Neil’s old band The Sonora Pine.
This is full of those lovely dusty country vibes that make you think of lonely old desert highways strewn with tumbleweed and the hot sun shimmering from the tarmac, gently fingerpicked guitars acoustic and electric flutter along with only a viola and a little Rhodes for company, as just a two man outfit of Jonny Fryer and Nick Downes (and a few other friends along for the ride) they create a sound much more than the sum of their parts, both orchestral and minimal but with a back to basics rock sound and no real studio trickery it’s so refreshing to hear music this honest these days.
