Unlike most of Trevor Peterson's previous material, either as Gem Trails or with Colorado-based weirdos Woodsman, there's no discernable melody to be found on "Cashed Out For Real," the latest track to be released under his solo moniker. Instead, he gives us a jittery, jumbled bout of digital-age anxiety that's rich in washed-out vocal samples and laser beam synths. The finished product is as odd and immersive as ever. The song is off Gem Trails' forthcoming Dripps EP, out September 9th via Peterson's own label, Fire Talk Records. You can preorder the limited edition cassette now.
