Trews – Time Capsule

Since this is all that I have in my collection, it is with regret that here we end my Trews series (for now). Until the band releases more, that is!

This disc is, also, the whole reason why I started this Trews series in the first place. Well, I mean, obviously, I love this band and doing a series was a natural thing to do. But the recent (September 9, 2016) release of their Hits set, and my snapping it up as soon as I saw it on the shelf in the shop, made me think, ‘hey, it’s time to cover all the rest and bring it all up to now and this release, and won’t that be fun!’ It absolutely was. Thanks for reading along!

Notes: At the bottom of this post, I have included the full (amazing) track listing from this release. I have also included all of the tour dates for their current tour. If you are anywhere near these towns, get out the there and see these guys in action!

The Trews Story Series, Part 10: Time Capsule

Being a hits set, I’m not gonna go through all the tracks we know and love again here, as I’ve already covered them in the series. But there are four new tracks on this set!

Lotta Work / Little Love is pure bluesy guitar Trews and oh man take notice! Mixed in with the established hits, you’d think this swaggering rawk blaster was released ages ago.

Sing Your Heart Out we know from the Acoustic: Friends And Total Strangers set. This studio version’s a gorgeous acoustic track that builds into a full band keeper. I just love this track. “Sing your heart out, drive them blues away” indeed!

Beautiful And Tragic takes a different tack, an almost 80s melody line while band jams away behind. It’s a quick rocker, and while it’s a bit different from the usual Trews, it also totally sounds like them and it’s fantastic. I love this song!

Chinese Kites builds off a cool intro and becomes another Trews rocker. How do these people continue to do this? It’s so crazy good. This energy, this savvy and ability. It’s glorious.

In Sum:

You need to buy this in multiple copies. Put one in your car, one in the house. Leave one at work and maybe one at the in-laws’ house. Whatever you do, make sure that wherever you go, you are not without this CD. Wow! What a testimony to the brilliance and glory of the Trews legacy (thus far). DIG IT!

    Sorry Aaron. I will only be buying one copy. That’s why they invented flash drives!

    I actually had no idea this had come out. It didn’t get on my radar — radio said nothing about it, and it never popped up in my Amazon store. Thanks, KMA!

    Nice one. I haven’t listened to The Trews yet, but hopefully I’ll get a chance to jump on the Trew bus this week. Hurrah!
