Friday Find – “At The Seams” by Trouble in the Wind – 5/9/14
The latest Trouble in the Wind album, Slide Rock, contains a whopping 16 tracks. Picking a favorite from the collection of tightly knit tracks is difficult but “At The Seams” is high on my list. I only wish it were twice as long.
The song is a shining example of what TITW does so well- building urgency and power as the song moves forward. The pitter pattering rhythm and singer Robby Gira’s vocals swimming over them is an intoxicating mixture. And if you’ve never seen what the dudes do live you’re missing out. Gira’s amped up vocals on both fast-paced jams and heartbreaking numbers are always met with the skillful performances of his band.
The band will hit one of San Diego’s best venues next Thursday, May 15 playing the Belly Up with Tolan Shaw and Yellow Red Sparks. Tickets are $8 online (will be $10 at door).
