Enjoy a nice fan-made video of this Sex Change jam. The guy told us: "I found this box of old VHS tapes while I was trespassing in the abandoned Trilurd robot factory last year. I decided to edit together the best parts of the footage into this video for "Obscene Strategies."

More on those Trans Am reissues! this 🎥 by Erik Barnes of 'North East Rising Sun' We met up in a recording school in New Zealand - where Nathan was living at the time. Then we mixed it while out of our heads in San Francisco on a steady diet of burritos and Tecate. So that kind of set the stage for a strong "fucking whatever" ethic ↓🎧

This album was recorded partially in New Zealand at a recording school and at Oneida's studio, The Ocropolis, in Brooklyn, and was mixed in San Francisco. The sessions in NZ were not the normal studio/party time for us because there were strict rules about smoking and drinking as it was in a school. We would make up for the lack of partying in NZ at the subsequent session in Brooklyn. The Ocropolis session yielded my favorite tracks on the album - 'First Words' and 'North East/Rising Sun'. There's a certain sense of release on 'North East/Rising Sun' that I hear every time I listen to that track. It captures a moment. The album really came together during the mixing with the help of our friend and engineer Aaron Prellwitz. We couldn't have done it without him. This might be my favorite Trans Am record, sonically speaking. Get it now! ~ Phil ~

Paris 🇫🇷 We are sincerely sorry to report that due to disruptions to our travel plans, we are unable to perform at Point Éphémère this evening.
