:: Trace Mountains - buttery sprouts ::

A little over a year after releasing his first EP under Trace Mountains, Dave Benton (of DDW/LVL UP/Spook Houses) has released the project’s first full length. The album goes by pretty quick, clocking in just over 20 minutes at 7 tracks, but it manages to pack a lot in that short amount of time (along with a Beyonce cover).

The album’s title track, buttery sprouts, has been floating around in my head since my first listen. Acoustic guitars bounce under layered vocals which creates a sort of ghosting effect. Following this we’re presented with a set of swift transitions from that bouncing intro to a pretty picking pattern and then to a distorted, fuzzy electric guitar. I could go on but the point is that this track is filled with these sorts of seamless transitions that feel right at home. The same can be said of Elaiza’s (Whatever, Dad/Crying) vocal contributions. Her voice slides effortlessly into the song and then joins Dave’s and it feels as if it was there all along. Everything on this track is in harmony and flows together perfectly. It all sort of happens faster than you realize and that’s the main reason why I find myself constantly revisiting this track, though that’s not to say that the songwriting isn’t just great in general.

Grab Buttery Sprouts digitally through the link below. There’s no word on a physical release at the moment but let’s hope for something soon.

hmmmm… i’ll look into it. maybe try on a different device? we’re currently working on a new website, so hopefully we won’t have these kinds of problems for too much longer. i’ll see if i can do anything about this in the meantime though.

will the sirs ep ever be repressed? I feel like it was once already but I want one :c

not likely! unless the band gets back together which would be tight as hell, but also not likely.

Does the Frankie Cosmos record come with a digital download? Hope all is well!
