Tuesday Tip-Off: Heather Trost

Heather Trost has been making the rounds here at Postcard Elba. We covered the first single from her album Petrichor (out now on Third Man Records), the 60’s psych banger “Love It Grows,” as part of our We Never Asked For This segment, and then we included her radical deconstruction of the Harry Nilsson song “Jump Into The Fire” in a Friday 5×5 post. Now we’re officially tipping you off to Trost’s unique vision with the latest single “Tracks to Nowhere.” A slower more expansive song than the previous singles, it still weaves the same kind of magic of Trost and bandmate/husband Jeremy Barnes to create something that feels like radio signals from an alternate universe. All the benchmarks and influences of 60’s underground pop and rock are there, but the way they’re combined and filtered through Trost and Barnes’ songwriting and production creates something that feels a hauntingly familiar and excitingly new.
