Where This Meets That
It was the second album from the Canadian alt-country outfit. The Trinity Session was perhaps best known for the rich, quality sound it achieved despite its bare bones production.
The band recorded the album performing around a single microphone during a single day in Toronto’s Church of the Holy Trinity, with exception of its opening track, “Mining for Gold”.
It features several original songs that demonstrated guitarist Michael Timmins’ maturation as a songwriter and his sister Margo’s strong development as a singer. In addition to the wonderful collection of original songs, the album also includes a unique blend of covers, including songs from Hank Williams, Elvis Presley, Patsy Cline, and The Velvet Underground.
As a whole, The Trinity Session is a hauntingly spacious and beautiful collection of subdued country-blues love songs, alternatively lonesome and fulfilled. The instrumentation is gorgeously subtle with smart use of harmonica and pedal steel guitars for accent. I highly recommend it for any lazy autumn day with a cup of hot tea and a good book.
