Drifting from the standard song structure and into a much more experimental and indie sound, Trailer Trash Tracys give us their second full length on Double Six entitled Althaea. A great mix of softly sung vocals and varying genres from Japanese tropical to Latin influenced indie. Available on special edition turquoise vinyl, heavyweight black vinyl and CD.
7/10 Clinton Staff review, 15 August 2017
It's literally the worst/most misleading band name ever. I'd imagine an Americana/country-rock band. Would you? Well if you did then you'd be sadly mistaken. Trailer Trash Tracys are an English experimental/dream pop band who make a textured form of electronic pop than has the same nods to the '80s as Wild Beasts. I'm thinking a kind of cross between Japan and Propaganda. On 'Gong Gardens' the band specialise in the kind of odd rhythms that Steve Jansen used clatter behind his Japan pals and the melodies are similarly Eastern influenced. On 'Money For Madness' the band make a kind of Stereolab style exotica which twists and cavorts in all kind of unexpected directions.
Comparisons could be made to Dutch Uncles brand of non linear 80s influenced pop, also Kate Bush pops about from time to time - there's fairlight synths and fretless bass in spades. Today on the headphones nothing is standing out but we've been enjoying this in the office this week. There's a song which sounds like Julia Holter re-interpreting the Mobiles 'Drowning in Berlin'. It's that kind of thing.
