Track of the Day #602: Trampolene – ‘Newcastle Brown Love Song’


We’ll play the video first and then reconvene in say 4 minutes for a chat…..

Phew, well er….sorry I’m speechless…kinda numbs you and brings you so low that no matter what your plight or situation is at this moment in time that your appreciably more happy to be there than here. This is serious end of the road last chance saloon and heading at pace towards the exit stuff, blistered, selfish and unremorsefully hopeless yet cowed and resigned to the fact there is no return.

Joyful bunnies aren’t they, anyhow this Trampolene who from what we can gather are hot property at the moment having released a handful of much admired 7’s and a brace of free to download cuts this year, are currently holed up putting the finishing touches to a 5 track release entitled ‘Pocket Album 2’.

Available as a free download until the end of November this is ‘Newcastle Brown Love Song’ – a quietly drawn tear stained slab of epic grandeur dulled and hollowed in withdrawn self-isolated introspection of a type that literally screams to be hugged. It comes kissed in the kind classically inspired pop craft whose lineage toys with everything from 50’s teen ballad heartbreak, 70’s glam decay, death discs and the bleak heart heavy anthems of a golden MTV age and crystallises the various ingredients into a hulking heart string popping Festive upsetter – the video incidentally is a bit of a hurter. Kerchiefs please…..

Wednesday 12th London Queen Of Hoxton (Hopscotch Club)

Thursday 27th Paris Truckle


Friday 19th London The Barfly (Jubilee Club)
