Trust Fund – Together (Stream)

trustfund

After a short stretch away from the new release calendar, tracks from bands like Night School, Modern Vices, Less Win, Deerhoof, benjamin783GØGGS, The By Gods, His Clancyness, Bat For Lashes, WALTER, and Hheaven reinvigorated some interest. Each of those new songs stood out as being worthy of both investment and praise but it was Trust Fund‘s latest, “Together”, that really managed to make a mark.

The band’s earned the position of site favorite thanks to a shockingly consistent run of spry, jangly basement pop that comes across as deeply felt and well-informed. “Together” continues to reveal the acts masterful grasp on both their identity and the genres that they choose to amplify with their songwriting approach. Organs, guitars, and vocal lines all weave a remarkably bright tapestry on “Together”, with the outro section standing out as some of the band’s finest work to date. All of “Together” is as winsome as ever and the band sets up their forthcoming We Have Always Lived in the Harolds with an endearing candor. Don’t miss out on what will undoubtedly stand as one of this season’s loveliest offerings.

Listen to “Together” below and pre-order We Have Always Lived in the Harolds from the band here.

What A Difference A Month Makes (Streams)

As was discussed in the preceding two posts, there’s been a serious lull of inaction on this site as of late as far as posting is concerned. A large reason for that was the fact that the majority of that coverage gap was spent traveling thousands of miles to document sets from bands like Oops, Dilly Dally, Yowler, Eskimeaux, Frankie Cosmos, Beach Slang, Potty Mouth, Dyke Drama, PWR BTTM, and more.

The resulting documentation will be posted at some point in the near future but the hefty amount of visual content (not to mention the act of traveling itself) necessitated a publishing break. However, as usual, every new piece of incoming information was accounted for in the interim. Full streams and music videos have already been covered so it’s time that the attention was turned towards individual songs.

A list of some of the finest new tunes to have emerged over the past month can be found below. Since there are so many, it may be best to bookmark this page and explore its contents at a more leisurely pace to avoid being overwhelmed. Jump on in and go swimming.
