Grand Trine

Sunglasses (Divorce)



Grand Trine promised a rock 'n' roll record on this 12-inch EP, and they delivered, sounding more loud and brash in contrast to the experimental sounds of their two earlier tape releases. Opening track "I Am a Magnet" is downright catchy and begs for repeat plays. The psychedelic biker-rock vibe is strong, and this is certainly noisy, but less noise music than earlier, the new sound in part due to the addition of a saxophone. Instrumental track "Love & Napalm: Export USA" sounds more like the psychedelic experimentation of their older songs. This record ends so abruptly I thought my roommate had shut it off angrily, but I think that's the point.
