TRENDEES, THE: We Are Sonic Art: LP

Mar 20, 2018

I don’t know if The Trendees realize how endearing they are. What I’m partly looking for in music is what this band offers: small-towners telling me “the food was not ideal/ at the boring party” and guitar solos that don’t necessarily fit the song. They’re also melodic, strange, lo-fi, amiable. I guess think very early Pavement or Silver Jews, or Half Japanese, or the more accessible side of Siltbreeze, or just being in a living room. When the master volume went up and then came back down on “Centre of Town,” that’s when I knew it was real. This record is a little gem. –Matt Werts (Albert’s Basement, / Melted Ice Cream,
