Trans Am
TA (Thrill Jockey)

By: Alex Steininger

A sonic mesh of pulsating dance beats, relaxed grooves, and subtle pop, the electronic rock of Trans Am is unusual, a style that is too rock-oriented for electronica fans, but a bit too electronic to be considered rock. Instead, they hover between the two, creating their own distinct sound, one that also incorporates psychedelic pop and Glam to further penetrate your mind and make you feel all that is Trans Am.

TA is a daring experiment of all that is unusual, all that is not the norm, and the outcome is a brilliant, smashing success of soundscapes and textures, varied instrumentation, and electronic devices. But, no matter what they're doing, they'll either have you drunk on their sounds, or dancing. I'll give this an A-.
