trust's 'trst' would have fit right in that mix. right from the get go, 'shroom' gets the magical techno show off to a rip-roaring good time. robert alfon's vocals drift from sounding like a nasally peter murphy at the height of 'bela lugosi's dead' to a less-theatrical male counterpart to glass candy's ida no. he's a tough one to peg down, but i say that as a compliment. you're never quite sure which alfon you're going to get.
the synths on a majority of the tracks are nothing short of...locomotive? pulsating? thunderous? menacing? pick your superlative. but which ever one you do pick, rest assured they'll bat you over the head until you scream for mercy. this is a heavy, heavy, heavy synth record and it's completely awesome (so much so, i almost went and dyed my hair black. again).
having said all of that, the great thing about 'trst' is that despite all it's menacing overtones, the songs themselves are still very sharp, full of tight, catchy melodies, and hook-filled choruses. it's not especially easy to pull off a full-fledged, heavy synth album without enduring a joke or two; but trust expertly pulls it off with enough flair and cajones to make even the gothiest of goths crack a smile. true story.
so, maybe i will go dye my hair black and party like it's 1989. it's not such a bad place to go.
Trust is an amazing band that sounds like classic horror film actor Vincent Price meets early/mid 80's electro Goth. All the elements are there; classic, dark vocal hooks along with wonderful analog synths and drum machine sounds. I felt transported back in time. For the young audiences they may assume this is a current sound, but you're really being treated to how brilliant music was 30 years ago, before Grunge ruined "Alternative" music and Marilyn Manson distorted and exploited the original Goth ethic. The closest comparison in sound would be Sisters of Mercy.
The album starts off very strong with the dark and brooding "Shoom", followed by the darkly catchy "Dressed for Space". Then we are treated to a remix of an earlier single called "Bulbform" with a wonderful repetitive hook. After a few more great tracks, the album does lose steam with a few lesser tracks all in a row, including "This Ready Flesh", "F.T.F" and "Heaven", but picks up again and closes with a real retro dance floor stunner, "Sulk". For those of you on iTunes, you can get another worthwhile bonus track called "The Dazzle".
It turns out Trust contains a member of another newly discovered Canadian band that I've recently fallen in love with called Austra. Though that band is classic, artistic synthpop with all those great classic electronic sounds, it's much more beautifully haunting than the dark Gothic style of Trust. Both bands are very exciting and I hope they continue to produce music of this quality.
