The Danish formation known as Trader keeps the tradition of good nineties vibes alive with their ashen shoegaze and alternative rock: somewhere between Slowdive and the more mid-tempo Dinosaur Jr stuff. There is no lack of imagination on this front: the band describes its sound like “a fistfight in slow motion”. Nice huh? Listening to Trader allows you ample time to brace yourself for impact. No matter how violently those noise guitars vibrate your ear lobes, the pain feels less bad in controlled dosages. We’re betting on a double K.O. at Left of the Dial.
