Ain’t no party like a trepanation party


trep⋅a⋅na⋅tion /ˌtrɛpəˈneɪʃən/
The process of cutting a hole in the skull, believed by some to lead to enlightenment. Either that or open-mindedness. Oooh.

After taking a few years of sabbatical, Voxtrot wants to have a special kind of party with you, with this brand new mp3 made available today. The brooding, catchy song was produced by Jim Eno of Spoon at his Austin, Texas studio.

It is especially fitting for this week of the year when preening musicians shed their downy winter coats and the musical industrialists begin their violent rutting in Austin. Voxtrot will play twice at SXSW this week.

  • Yesssss finally. I have missed them so dearly, and oh, what a comeback. This track is ridiculously unlike what they used to sound like, but it’s fantastic.

"I love the relationship that anyone has with music: because there's something in us that is beyond the reach of words, something that eludes and defies our best attempts to spit it out. It's the best part of us, probably, the richest and strangest part..."
—Nick Hornby, Songbook
"Music has always been a matter of energy to me, a question of Fuel. Sentimental people call it Inspiration, but what they really mean is Fuel."
—Hunter S. Thompson

Mp3s are for sampling purposes, kinda like when they give you the cheese cube at Costco, knowing that you'll often go home with having bought the whole 7 lb. spiced Brie log. They are left up for a limited time. If you LIKE the music, go and support these artists, buy their schwag, go to their concerts, purchase their CDs/records and tell all your friends. Rock on.
