Trans Am

have been recording vaguely conceptual albums since 1996, though their instrumental flamboyance is best appreciated live. The constant-touring-three-piece band from Maryland tread a fine line between sppof and homage, mainly centering on a cerebrally robotic, semi-danceable, minimalistic format.

Which song do you listen to when...

Kraftwerk

Bruce Springsteen

Commercial radio stations.

The best music I ever heard on a plane was a muzak version of it.
