On their third record, High Seas, they\'ve layered the sound up with dusty cloaks of reverb and echo and created a hillbilly noir classic. It\'s the Cramps, Dock Boggs, and Hasil Adkins all fronted by the hypnotizing vocals of Melissa Swingle. It\'s got love songs to clog-dancing folk hero Jesco, chiggers, and West Texas wastelands. Trailer Bride is the spookiest catchiest band ever and this release is their best to date.
\"A spooky, swampy triumph. The lyrics fall somewhere between the gothic textures of Flannery O\'Connor and the cosmic ramblings of a junkyard dealer who\'s huffed too much gasoline while listening to Tom Waits records.\" Bobby Reed, No Depression
\"Swingle spins tales of dancing outlaws and avenging ghosts that\'d scare the bejesus out of even the most stoic listeners. The band takes it all in stride, though, playing reverb-laden death waltzes and hypnotic hymns. It\'s one of the year\'s best.\" Jimmy Draper, San Francisco Bay Guardian
\"One of the best roots-rock bands operating today--too graceful to be campy, and chilling ballads are orchestrated perfectly to pluck at you like branches in the dark.\" Monica Kendrick, Chicago Reader
