For over 20 years, Trashcan Sinatras have been providing us with moody, jangly guitar rock (think Smiths, Orange Juice, Luna) from their home in Glasgow. Even though their previous album Weightlifting was their most successful to date, they promised something different this time around – In The Music, their fifth studio album, will supposedly feature happy love songs. Unfortunately, their North American distribution deal fell apart at the last minute, so tonight is your best chance to hear those new songs for at least a few more months. I can’t offer up much on the opening band Brookville, except that it’s the side project of Ivy’s Andy Chase, so expect electronic indie pop but without Dominique Durand’s voice layered over the top.
It’s a Monday night, but since it’s at The Triple Door (a perfect underground respite from the sun, with incredible acoustics), the show starts at 7:30.
The video for possibly their most popular single, “Hayfever”, is below. Three minutes of pop perfection.
