After a three-year hiatus, Washington, DC’s standard bearers of tongue-in-cheek synth-rock have returned with Thing, a record that shows they may have finally outgrown flippancy after all. Or least they’ve found a way to showcase their sc-fi obsession without getting embarrassed about it. – PopMatters
Ninth studio album by Trans Am, which is scheduled for April release via Thrill Jockey label. Its a follow-up to their 2007 LP “Sex Change”.
