In celebration of Thrill Jockey's 25th Anniversary Trans Am’s 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.
Home base moved from Tacoma Park to Washington DC for the recording of this record. Originally titled Rough Justice, Surrender to the Night was recorded at Trans Manor as well as Chicago's Soma Studios and recorded by John McEntire. 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.
