Sex Change (White Vinyl) by Trans Am
|Thrill Jockey Records|
Trans Am’s classic 2007 album Sex Change gets a first time vinyl re-issue. Pressed on color vinyl for the first time (white!) and packaged with an artworked inner sleeve and free download coupon. After 2004’s Liberation Trans Am exploded and abandoned Washington, D.C. for three different continents. With Nathan Means in Auckland, Phil Manley in San Francisco and Sebastian Thomson splitting time between London and New York internal contact was primarily electronic but for a handful of live shows. With two years’ of separation fueling them, the band began in June 2006 on a program of sporadic rendezvous, reconvening briefly on several continents to work on what would become the most joyous and upbeat rock album of Trans Am’s chronicle. After the release of Sex Change Trans Am toured the world including appearances at Thrill Jockey’s 20th Anniversary parties and a run of shows with TOOL.
