Check this out: Neighborpoem - 'Sold For Fire'

By Sasha Geffen

Hugh Trimble carves canyons from the air. His latest output as Neighborpoem spans the atmosphere in huge, organic sweeps. As a fellow east coast transplant, I'm reminded of the mountains and cliffs of the land that touches the Atlantic. I understand the need to fill the flat midlands with songs that sound like torrential rains rushing down glacial granite slopes. With booming percussion and layered harmonies, handclaps and cascading guitars, Neighborpoem does just that. Like Fleet Foxes imbued with military urgency, "Sold For Fire" builds space and then fills it with transcendental echoes. This simple but massive track is one of three now available to download for free from Trimble.
