Liberation (Music - Trans Am)

Producer (group): Thrill Jockey; Status: In Season

The impending election has clearly inspired this D.C.-based trio, who wave an unabashedly anti-Bush banner on their seventh CD. Unfortunately, Trans Am’s New Order – meets – Chemical Brothers synth-nostalgia seldom provides a sufficiently scintillating soapbox. Only brooding instrumentals like ”Pretty Close to the Edge” evoke an emotionally ripe paranoia worthy of their lofty political aspirations.
