Call To Confirm Colored Copies Are Still Available
In celebration of Thrill Jockey's 25th Anniversary Trans Am's classic 1997 sophomore set Surrender to the Night is back on the vinyl format at long last...pressed on colored LP for the first time to boot and packaged with an accompanying download card.
Originally titled Rough Justice, Surrender to the Night was recorded at Trans Manor as well as Chicago's Soma Studios and recorded by John McEntire. Trans Am made use of many of the fine keyboards manufactured by the Roland Company and the Casio Computer Company throughout the recording and it shows the band moving forward musically and achieving an even greater balance of rock and electronics.
"Night...inviting and beguiling sensual and brooding sinful and hypnotic a time of rejecting responsibility, of blindly embracing taboo, of the ever present eruptions of love and violence. Trans Am have not just explored, but surrendered to the night's watery rush. This is a complete surrender - a dissolution of consciousness, a oneness with the nocturne's ethereal threat and erotic magic." - Trans Am
