“Enthralling, a creative circus of the wonderfully surreal.”
“New Yorker Thomas Truax is becoming one of rock’s great eccentrics. Endlessly creative, he not only makes music which is singularly original, he invents his own instruments to play it on.”
– Oxford Times
Right now you can download three of his songs for free,
including ‘The Butterfly and the Entomologist’:
“‘It’s an incredible song, a cinematic road trip of the mind… Poetically evocative and rich with melancholy” (Signal to Noise Magazine) Plus ‘Beehive Heart’ played on ‘The Hornicator’ and a track from his best-selling David Lynch covers album.
“One of Truax’s most haunting pieces “The Butterfly…” is a seven-minute fable about a wounded butterfly and the traveler who tries to protect her. The cut is almost all spoken word, lit with anxiety by Meredith Yayanos’s trembling violin tones. Yayanos also sings, contributing the eerie and beautiful butterfly’s chorus that makes the song’s central point. To evoke the sound of its the butterfly’s wings, Truax plays the guitar with a hand-held rotary fan, creating fluttering arpeggios. That chorus will stick with you forever.” -Splendid Magazine
