tRips And falLs – Corduroy Dreams

Trippy stuff.  Me Like!

From: Song By Toad:

Jacob from Trips and Falls emailed me this album ages ago, and I absolutely loved it. If it weren’t for this release being on the horizon, it would have been up at the top of my list of albums of the year last year, but in September they agreed to release it on Song, by Toad Records so I have to hold off until my 2010 lists.

This is just a strange album altogether, but it’s full of surprising pop moments. It’s a record with You Should Really Get Yours and Prelude to a Shark Attack back to back – one of the weirdest and one of the prettiest songs on the whole label.

Trips and Falls – How Do You Do

Trips and Falls is described as “gentle and spooky guitar pop, alternately sadly sweet and disturbingly arrhythmic” with an “eerie vibe that creeps into the mix” and “interesting background clanks and textures” which causes the listener to feel “equally confused and impressed with their tormented soul and unconventional beauty”. Currently Trips and Falls consists of Jacob Romero and Ian Langohr on Testosterone and Ashleigh Delaye and Amanda Caron on Estrogen. The band is releasing their first album “He Was Such a Quiet Boy” (on Song, by Toad Records) on March 22nd 2010. ..
