Amazing Musical Discoveries for The Sonic Adventurer #2: BOBB TRIMBLE

March 8, 2008


Bobb Trimble is an American musician active since the 70’s or 80’s. He plays some amazing psychedelic folk. And I  only came across him recently. Being a fan of anything psychedelic, I fell in love with him immediately. His records are hard to come by and not being accessible during the 80’s is a bad thing. Good thing Secretly Canadian (home to such amazing acts as Songs: Ohia, Magnolia Electric Co., Antony and The Johnsons, Scout Niblett, and others) decided to release his material. And now, more and more people are becoming aware of his music.

His vocal style reminds me of the high-pitched vocals of Geddy Lee from Rush. But the song structures and lyrics echo of Syd Barrett. Space-folk, neo-folk, freakfolk, psychedelic folk, new weird america… call this what you will, in the end this is just amazing music with amazing instrumentation and amazing songwriting.

PS. If you are able to buy the album, please do so. That’s the least we could do to these amazing artists who are kind enough to share their music with us.
