Record Label: Thrill Jockey Records
Trans Ams classic 1997 album Surrender to the Night is back on vinyl. Pressed on color vinyl for the first time (red!) and packaged with a free download card. Trans Am composed Surrender to the Night when they all lived together in Takoma Park, MD. They then recorded again with John McEntire in Chicago, this time at his brand new Soma Studios located in the loft where most members of Tortoise lived. Trans Am made use of many of the fine keyboards manufactured by the Roland Company and the Casio Computer Company throughout the recording. The record shows the band moving forward musically and achieving an even greater balance of rock and electronics.
