While I’m Thinking About It

Right before I started blogging here at sunny Times Union Estates, I scored a copy of Trans Am’s juicy 2007 album Sex Change. While it’s never really thrilled me so intensely that I’ve felt compelled to gush about it, it has remained on my regular rotation of car CD’s for the better part of eight months, and I still tend to turn the stereo up any time one of its songs pops up on the computer jukebox, so the album must be doing something right for me, in its own slow and low key way. Mostly instrumental, Sex Change blends analog synths and power trio panache into a neat genre frappe in which funky and rocky and cheesy elements all co-exist happily and effectively. It’s a charming record, though it’s charms may be slow to reveal themselves.
