I highly recommend this internet radio show. Tyler plays some old jazz, reads poetry and does other free form announcements.
Not much press for this one (shame), but Ad Hoc liked it.
Denny Laine had a somewhat fresh and entergetic take on Buddy Holly's songwriting, as did Fleetwood Mac on their earlier LPs. But the songcrafting that Tyler Larson of Tracey Trance carves out of a fascination for Holly comes off as a much more authentic yet original take on Rock and Roll's roots, before they were strangled, and bled dry by modern musceled up parameters. This allows Tracey Trance's work in particular to feel un-paralleled in the modern world, without ever feeling like some kind of retro throwback. Along with poignant lucidly plucked riffs and melodic hooks, is this totally sincere smoked out-law beachy exotica vibe that Larson has been working on for a long while now.......Whether he's playing portable keyboards, dragging hammond organs outta the side of a mini bus, jamming flutes, guitars or banjo, Tyler pulls it off in a most chill and hypnotic fashion. Add some beautifully warm sky's the limit tape saturation and Pyper Kub becomes one of the best experimental pop records to come out in quite some time.

LP version of the self-released tape that caught fire in the wake of the Tracey Trance spring 2012 tour. This particular charmer finds TT moving away from the wild and flowing Ethiopiques-style organ/keyboard jams to discrete guitar-based songs about real-life stuffs, but still spun stoney and free and wonderous, feel-good, raw, shambolic - with some cool keys and banjo thrown into the mix.
