Trance Farmers, Sun Araw, Odd Nosdam, DJ Nanny Cantaloupe
Leaving Records' new signees Trance Farmers are gonna be right at home in the L.A. freak scene. If you've already signed on for the lo-fi postpunk-as–hip-hop of Vex Ruffin, the overcranked Hasil Adkins–isms of Restavrant, or that first beautifully indistinct White Fence LP, you'll enjoy plenty of, "Dude, do we know each other?" moments during Trance Farmers' new full-length, Dixie Crystals. And if not, you'll still experience happy flashes of recognition, as long as you've spent a little time floating along the fringe. "Dream Train," for example, taps that Syd Barrett spirit, while "Fume" builds on the blissed-out/bleaked-out psych-dub that served Brightblack Morning Light so well. Like a lot of Leaving acts, Trance Farmers are in-betweeners — there's something from everything here, but not in the way you'd expect. With local visionaries Sun Araw and Odd Nosdam, as well.
