Label: Third Man
Third Man Records is chuffed to present to you the New Mexico-based artist Heather Trost's new solo full-length. Petrichor is fresh, unique, and really good. Sonically, this modern psychedelic pop music is as experimental as it is accessible. Petrichor was recorded between 2018 and 2019 by Trost and her husband Jeremy Barnes at their home studio. These seven lush, beautiful songs defy easy categorization, gleefully mixing elements from multiple genres - but it's never to impress you or show off. You might not even notice how smart the record is until a fifth listen, a testament to how much work was put into the futuristic and shimmering sound. With Trost's Petrichor, we have a record that sounds like the soundtrack to what might come next, on the off chance that what comes next really doesn't suck. "Even though shit had yet to hit the fan when I wrote these songs," Trost says, "2019 also felt like such a crazy year in terms of what was happening in the world, I felt like I needed to remind myself to have joy and love in my heart. It's something I meditate on a lot, especially when it seems like the world is ending."
