If you do not already own Trans Am’s first album on Thrill Jockey – do yourself a favor and check it out here.
The first time I purchased this CD was at a show at the Cog Factory in Omaha, NE, circa 1996? I was completely dumbfounded by their flawless combination of accoustic and electronic instrumentation, awesome beats, riffs, and sonic variety. It was for me, an opinion changing event, having scoffed at electronics for years. After their set, they were trying to trade CDs for weed, but having none, gave them the $10 for the CD instead. I lost the CD somewhere along the way, and was thinking about trying to find it again, when I went to the Thrill Jockey site and ordered up the MP3s. Well worth the $10 – I know you will agree.
