Trailer Trash Tracys – “Los Angered” Video

In the video for the Stereolabesque British art-pop crew Trailer Trash Tracys’ song “Los Angered,” we see the members of the band superimposed against swirling candy-colored foam. We also see that same foam bubbling out of various receptacles, which weirdly gives me a sudden craving for Lucky Charms. Penny Mills directs. Watch it below. More »

Trailer Trash Tracys – “Candy Girl (Black Dice Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

Ester, the first album from the bent British indie-pop crew Trailer Trash Tracys, has finally arrived on our shores. And to mark the occasion, we’ve got a remix of their track “Candy Girl” from New York experimental mainstays Black Dice, who turn the track into staticy, chaotic fizz.

Trailer Trash Tracys – “Engelhardt’s Arizona” Video

Astral imagery and jellyfish moneyshots combine with facial closeups and an introductory formal hypnosis exercise (really) to constitute the core elements of this video for Trailer Trash Tracys’ Stereolab-on-Steve Vai track “Engelhardt’s Arizona.” All of this makes it a perfectly representative document of what the London outfit is up to with their twisted, languid-yet-frenetic future-pop,… More »

Trailer Trash Tracys – “Englehardt’s Arizona (James Ferraro Remix)”

Brooklyn keyboard-noodler James Ferraro has worked his particular sort of magic on “Englehardt’s Arizona,” the single from the British band Trailer Trash Tracys, and rendered it basically unrecognizable with his dark horror-wave sound manipulations. Listen below. More »

Stereogum Monthly Mix: September 2011

Save a bit of humidity, it is an undeniably autumnal day in NYC. It’s gray, it is wet, and it feels positively gauche to jam to anything that would feel right at a beach. So to help to fill the void created by expunging “sunny music” from your daily playlist, and to show solidarity with… More »

Trailer Trash Tracys – “Engelhardt’s Arizona”

Last month, we posted ‘Dies In 55,” a new track from the London skewed-pop group Trailer Trash Tracys. Now, we’ve got a song that’ll soon appear on a double A-side single with that track. Like “Dies In 55,” “Engelhardt’s Arizona” is a strange but pretty song that suggests a 2011 version of Stereolab’s cosmopolitan future-pop. More »

In prep for tomorrow’s sold-out show opening for the xx at London’s Village Underground, shoegazy Spector-acolytes Trailer Trash Tracys played a short but sweet set at the Sonic Cathedral last night.
