TOY GUITAR The band is built on the sunny vocals of Jack Dalrymple (whom you know and love from his long tenure in Swingin' Utters), who dragged his Utters cohort Miles Peck into the mix. The two eventually recruited their sometime Re-Volts bandmate Paul Oxborrow ("In the grand and time-honored tradition of band incest," cracks Paul). To accompany the fuzzy vox, bouncy bass, and jangly guitars, the boys looked south from their Bay Area environs and pulled in the driving drum beats of Los Angeles sticks maven Rosie Gonce. Together, the foursome collaborated to churn out the most blissed out, full throttle album of beachy sounds you'll hear 'til spring. When asked whether a summery, surfy vibe was the end goal, Oxborrow says, "I don't think there was anything intentional, but I will say that we recorded the album in the middle of July, on vintage-y Fender equipment, and heavily under the influence of fish tacos, so maybe some of that rubbed off." "Plus Miles's approach to those 'Mexi-solos' and Rosie's approach to drums," adds Dalrymple. "It could also be my sea foam green guitar cuz that screams surf poseur too."
THE NEW TRUST
The New Trust is a co-ed Bay Area punk band who for the last ten years has been bashing out unique, melody-driven love songs. For The New Trust, however, "love song" might be a misnomer since both lyrically and musically they have more in common with bands like Shellac, Neurosis, or Party of Helicopters than other sappy indie-rock bands pouring their hearts out. Over the span of ten years and five albums The New Trust has managed to tour with bands as diverse as Loma Prieta and Ampere to These Arms Are Snakes, Smoking Popes and Minus the Bear, along the way learning every lesson that three people could possibly learn about being a band.
