Trans Am

Trans Am, overlords of futureworld synthesizer-streaking groovage, pulverizing riff-rocking anthems and Vocoder-warped, robotic speak-sing histrionics are fast approaching the twentieth anniversary of its 1996 post-rock movement-defining self-titled first record and they are celebrating the milestone early with spanking new LP, Volume X. Back in the 90’s indie rock glory years when Tortoise and The Sea and the Cake were meticulously post-jazzing it up, Trans Am were the electro-batshitalternative, reconfiguring weirdo Devo-esque booty shakers and sound manipulating Kraut-rock through an Atari console and spitting out a dancified, sci-fi alien music. That fuckery is manifested once again on the return-to-planetary-form of Volume X, Trans Am’s first record in four years. Expect a similar space-rock mind-meld this evening as Trans Am embark on a rare tour.
