Royal Trux "3 Song EP" Pitchfork 8.0

Trux forever, haters whatever!

The venerable institution known as Royal Trux received an 8.0 review on Pitchfork today for their Drag City 12" / CD EP not-so-complicatingly-titled 3 Song EP.  

"....more just than hip a new generation to this eternally enigmatic, eminently influential band (Deerhunter’s Monomania being just the last album to mainline their scuzz-rock steez), the fat-free reissues speak to Neil Hagerty and Jennifer Heremma’s treatment of the album as a self-contained, vacuum-sealed unit, each with its own distinct themes, theoretical approaches, sonic signatures, and supporting casts of players."

"Where Accelerator tweaked the treble and distortion to equilibrium-imbalancing extremes, 3-Song EP emphasizes the Trux’s mastery of rhythm, groove, and freak flag-flying jams."
