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...
you ride a bicycle?
Kraftwerk
you go to a club?
Bruce Springsteen
you cook?

Commercial radio stations.

you prepare for an important date?
Crowded House
you are in a depressive mood?
Neil Young
you want to disturb your neighbours?
Flipper
you drive a car late at night?
Billy Squier
you fall asleep?
Bastro
you make love?

No music. I need to concentrate.

you sit in a plane?
R. Kelly - I Believe I Can Fly

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

you have to answer an elusive questionnaire?

Again, no music. I’m listening to a national radio weather forecast. It doesn’t look good.

you have to spend a night in a spooky hotel?
Meat Loaf

Would turn my fear into rage.

you sit in the subway?

I don’t really listen to a walkman or anything, so nothing again.

you wake up?

No music. My alarm clock.

you work in the garden?

Have you ever worked in the garden? Bad venue for music listening.
