Thomas Truax

It’s been ages since we last wrote anything about Thomas Truax. Well, four months. But four months ago was last year, and last year is old news. Right now it’s all about 2011. I will accept discussion about no other year. Luckily, Thomas, much like fellow eccentric popster and CMU favourite Tim Ten Yen, has launched a year long project, which will see him release a new track every month until 2011 is but a dried up carcass of a year, discarded like so many before it.

Entitled ‘The Monthly Journal’, the project will see Truax write a new song each month, influenced by the goings on around him during that period of the year. The first track, ‘January Egg Race Dream’, is a largely spoken word affair with a smoky jazz backing, pulling the listener into a, er, dream about being in an egg and spoon race in January. You can stream it and, for a limited time only, download it for free on SoundCloud now.
