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.

We Never Asked For This – Heather Trost

We Never Asked For This is our short review of a release that showed up in our inbox unsolicited.

On “Love It Grows” Heather Trost trades in the eastern European and Balkan folk of her group A Hawk and a Hacksaw for a psych drenched 60’s pop sound that hits like the coolest track on a collection of reissued rarities from the Summer of Love. From the hypnotic cooing vocals to the fuzzed out bass to the all toms drum part to the verse in French to the inevitable sitar this track is pitch perfect in every way. “Love It Grows” is the first single off the full length Petrichor, due November 6, 2020 via Third Man Records.
