March 3, 2012 Traxx – Time
Well it looks like our friend Traxx is at it again. As of March 2nd, Traxx released his first official EP, Time. Clocking in at under 15 minutes, this three song EP is short, sweet and to the point. But that’s not to say that Thomas Gallicani didn’t have fun with this one. The songs still have that same blend of danceable 80s rock with modern chillwave that always gets this blogger thinking of long summer days on the beach. The EP opens with the song fittingly titled “Sun,” which leans more towards pop than some of Traxx’s other stuff. Then comes “Sidera,” where Traxx finds himself back to his usual tricks again with washed out guitar solos and a tight drum beat that’s definitely gonna get your toes tapping. He also throws a few twists on this song by adding in some bongos and vocal samples. Finally, the EP closes with an old favorite, “Yesterdays.” Traxx may have been off the radar for a while, but it looks like it was with good cause. Gallicani’s Time EP is an impressive self-produced debut and I can’t wait to hear what more Traxx has in store. You can check it out for free on his soundcloud and I’ve put the songs below as well.
