Fresh off Arvid Noe‘s last show earlier this week, Zach D’Agostino’s project with fellow ex-Scouter Travis Hunter is closing up tonight in Allston. Thankfully, Trach has left us with a sick final transmission. Mor comes out on tape just in time for said show courtesy of Midnight Werewolf Records. Trach is at their best on songs like “Bastard” below, where arpeggiator-like guitars precisely line up over an amorphous, frenetic drum pattern, giving way to expressive vocals and plenty of clever arranging. Elsewhere, on “Beast” and “Dead Dog”, reflective textural passages dissipate over heavy breaks at a breakneck pace. The traps are set – every song is outfitted with its own surprises, and repeat listens will definitely be crucial to unpack this little puzzle. Pick up the tape tonight, or grab a digital copy here.
