Party Trash – Squares

One of the best things to happen when mining for unearthed music in the Nashville area is stumbling upon an artist you’ve never heard previously mentioned that just so happens to have a huge catalog of works in a genre you’d never associate with the city.

There’s almost zero easily obtainable info available about Party Trash beyond their own Twitter bio; “most ignored producer since 2010.” That may be so but the latest release, squares, should not be ignored. It’s a surprising combination of softness and glitches that should be jarring and unsettling but it has an oddly calming effect.

With nearly 30 releases on Bandcamp there’s plenty more to dig into but squares serves as an excellent introduction to an artist doing something outside the norm.
