REViEWS >> DiSC OF THE WEEK

TRUST Trst

Trust's TRST album cover detail

The weather outside?  Frightful.  The fire burning at the heart of Trust‘s TRST LP as it comes out of my living room speakers?  That’s frightful, too, but in a very delightful way.  Robert Alfons, the bleeding heart and haunting soul of Trust has given goth rock a great big bear hug and smothered it in snythpop’s answer to the snuggie, almost to the point of suffocation.  It’s taken me some months to come around to appreciating what Alfons and his collaborator, Austra’s Maya Postepski, have done with TRST.  I admit that initially I just wrote them off for the outward similarities to Crystal Castles in both sound, style, and genetic makeup, but the more I’ve been exposed to Trust’s frostbitten beats, the greater my fondness has grown for their particular anemic and engaging sound.

The tone on TRST is so icy you could easily slip and fall on “The Last Dregs” and “Bulbform”.  On the other end, “Dressed For Space” is pure dancefloor filling bliss, throbbing and swaying.  The dark, melodramatic undertones could make the whole thing come off as a stilted pastiche of gloomy, gothic rock, but in Alfon’s hands, Trust sound natural, in their element, like the anthemic pulse of closer “Sulk” was effortlessly tossed off in the moment it was made.  Unlike so much in this musical genre, TRST doesn’t sound overly studied or obsessed over, even though the band has been refining and working on their sound and stage show for a couple of years before even venturing to lay down the tracks in recorded form.  

Is it a little late to declare an album released back in the dying days of February as my last DiSC of the WEEK for 2012?  Late, sure, but better then never acknowledging the fact that this twisted, tender, and spooky record stood out from the crowd this past year.

TRST is released on Arts & Crafts.

  1. I’m not sure where you’re getting your info, but good topic. I needs to spend some time learning much more or understanding more. Thanks for wonderful information I was looking for this info for my mission.

  2. Thanks for your posting. I have continually noticed that the majority of people are wanting to lose weight when they wish to show up slim in addition to looking attractive. Even so, they do not usually realize that there are more benefits for you to losing weight also. Doctors state that over weight people come across a variety of health conditions that can be perfectely attributed to their own excess weight. The good thing is that people who’re overweight along with suffering from various diseases can help to eliminate the severity of the illnesses by simply losing weight. It is possible to see a gradual but marked improvement with health while even a negligible amount of weight reduction is achieved.

  3. Thanks for sharing your ideas. I might also like to convey that video games have been at any time evolving. Modern tools and improvements have assisted create reasonable and enjoyable games. These kinds of entertainment video games were not as sensible when the real concept was being tried. Just like other designs of electronics, video games way too have had to develop by many decades. This is testimony towards the fast development of video games.

  4. Sorry for the huge review, but I’m really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it’s the right choice for you.

  6. Some tips i have seen in terms of pc memory is that often there are technical specs such as SDRAM, DDR and so forth, that must match up the specifications of the mother board. If the personal computer’s motherboard is reasonably current while there are no main system issues, replacing the memory literally will take under sixty minutes. It’s one of the easiest laptop upgrade methods one can consider. Thanks for revealing your ideas.

  8. I think that a foreclosed can have a significant effect on the client’s life. House foreclosures can have a 7 to decade negative impact on a applicant’s credit report. A borrower who have applied for a mortgage or any kind of loans for that matter, knows that the worse credit rating is, the more challenging it is to have a decent loan. In addition, it may possibly affect the borrower’s power to find a decent place to let or hire, if that will become the alternative property solution. Good blog post.

  9. I have to point out my love for your kind-heartedness supporting those people that really need assistance with this important niche. Your personal dedication to passing the solution throughout turned out to be quite helpful and have truly helped women just like me to reach their goals. The warm and helpful instruction denotes a whole lot to me and extremely more to my office workers. Many thanks; from all of us.

  16. I had so many issues with Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills service that we decided to cancel. I called and canceled and was told my account was closed and that Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills would call me regarding a refund for the previous month due to my dissatisfaction with the service. I was never called back and was charged again the following month. I called them back to remove the charge and I was told my account was never canceled in the first place. I had them pull up the phone conversation on the date I had canceled. They were unable to argue when they heard that yes, indeed I had canceled my account. It took them weeks to refund me my money, and when I asked to speak to a manager of Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills I was told no one was there and that one would call me back. Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills never did. I called back 5 times leaving messages and asking to please speak to a manager regarding my experience. No one ever called me back. Today I made one last valiant effort to speak with a manager and share my experience. I was transferred to the Scott Whitaker and company billing department where an employee by the name of Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills rudely defended their service and was unable to have any empathy or even listen to my experience. Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills lacked professionalism or any type of customer service skills and should not be speaking with clients. She told me that it was not her problem because it was another department’s mistake. Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills stated that some clients are going to like their service and some are not. Wow what a way to run a business!!! I will never use Scott Whitaker from Grabada Hills overpriced and poorly run service again and would not suggest it to my worst enemy.
