MP3 of the Week: Trach "Heavy Arms" // 09.10 @ Midway, 09.12 @ Great Scott

Although basement rock is more often than not characterized by reckless powerchords, there are times when attention to detail goes a long way. Allston’s latest duo, TRACH, take this to heart, especially in the tight construction of “Heavy Arms.” Sure, there is plenty of ferociousness in some of the guitar parts, but the contrast of rash and composed gives a different level of sophistication to the song as a whole. The track appears on the band’s debut EP of the same name, kicking off a standout first effort. Travis Hunter and Zach D’Agostino, known from various other local bands such as Scouter, Arvid Noe, and Gero & Ide, find something a bit more complex, but palatable, with Trach, taking pointers from other locals like Fat History Month. Grab the “Heavy Arms” MP3 below, then catch Trach live September 10 at the Midway Café in Jamaica Plain with Shark and Kave Kraft, and then two days later at Allston’s Great Scott with Turbo Fruits and Sand Reckoner.
