The Trailer Trash Tracys win bonus points for their name and this song would definitely not be heard anywhere near a trailer park. This is off their only album, Ester.
This twangy guitar driven band would set the mood to any David Lynch project. Their music has been heard on the TV series, The Killing, which is how I discovered them. They’re about half shoegaze, and half sad stripper music, which makes them perfect for the Lipstick Emo.
Since the poster on youtube disabled embedding, I opted to go to with a video of a still of the album cover instead. It’s an uninspired arty b&w video anyway, so you’re not really missing much.
Hope Sandoval with help from the Warm Inventions, play the soundtrack to your dreams with this song. A simple guitar riff, a glockenspiel, and a whispering sweet-voiced woman is all you need. This is off of their first album, Bavarian Fruit Bread.
Hope Sandoval was previous to this in Mazzy Star. She’s collaborated with Massive Attack, Death In Vegas, Chemical Brothers, and many more. She’s released many tunes, but with this particular roster, has only put out 2 albums (2001 & 2009), and 2 EPS. She’s been tagged as childlike and aloof, and that’s alright by me, as long as she keeps putting out music like this.
