TRACEY TRANCE "Pyper Kub" c32 (Self Released)

We've long been a fan of Tracey Trance here at Cassette Gods.  His concise fun machine dreamhouse tapes on Night People and Not Not Fun are highlights of both those label's catalogs and his Hangtown USA tour tapes have been some of my personal favorite tapes of recent memory.  I'm very pleased to announce that Pyper Kub, which was available on the recent tour from Florida to Maine, shows new and exciting development to the dude's songwriting.  Nearly all the tracks are composed for guitar, bass, drums and vocals.  Those amazing wah-wah swoops are still in full effect and sound not a bit diminished as they wrap themselves around six-string work whilst glides smoothly over the now trademark haltering dance beat.  The real shinning star here are the lyrics and melodies which are featured more prominently than on any other release in his discography.  A lovely and sincere collection of road songs from one of the USA's most singular sound-makers.
