Grouch/House Arrest – November 1st
It’s been a prosperous year for Robert Alfons and his journey towards deconstructing his rooted notions of shame and loathing. TR/ST’s The Destroyer, in its two-part release, has proven to be a valuable testimonial of strength, while showcasing Alfons’ versatility as a songwriter and performer. Where pulsating synths and devious lyrics elevated the maturity across the first half of the record, The Destroyer – 2 drowns itself in melancholy, as TR/ST strips down to the core while exploring new dynamics with instruments, allowing his freedom and creative expansion to thrive. Musical direction differs from that of his past, but by incorporating raw, truthful elements into his music, Alfons has created an inspiring record – and his most consistent to date.
