Various Artists TRR50 Thank You

  • Words: John Dark
  • Label: Temporary Residence

Temporary Residence has just solved the problem of what to do when you're in a pensive, quiet mood but you feel like a wuss putting on Cat Stevens or Bright Eyes. To celebrate their 50th release, the Portland label comes through with 11 new tracks that lovingly stitch together fuzzy guitars and ambient washes with the occasional digital pulse and glitch. Tarentel and Explosions in the Sky make like more experimental, instrumental updates of shoegazers Slowdive, Four Tet side project Fridge delivers pastoral sampler pop and Sybarite soundtracks a long car ride with the Arizona desert coming into sharp relief over the dashboard. TRR50 is destined to be loved like that old, faded patch on your favorite jeans.
