Trailer Trash Tracys: Ester

Being practically perfect in every way already, my only resolution this New Year is to post less waffle, more often. In other words: shorter posts, but more of them. To that end…

Two years after their “Candy Girl” single first set the blogosphere buzzing, London-based quartet Trailer Trash Tracys are finally releasing their debut album, Ester, on Domino offshoot Double Six next week. The band’s blend of twangy 50s-inspired guitar pop and woozy samples sounds like a 4AD-released synth-pop remix of a David Lynch soundtrack, with sultry vocalist Suzanne Aztoria playing the part of Julee Cruise, and although there is often more emphasis on sinister atmospherics than on truly memorable melodies, Ester‘s spiralling riffs and unconventional rhythms make TTT’s brand of opiated dream-pop pretty hard to sleep on.  Listen: “Strangling Good Guys”

Ester is out January 9th on Double Six

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
