One of my favorite albums from last year is Lubec’s debut THE THRALL. So when Eddie (Lubec’s singer/guitarist) reached out to me about his new band Wet Trident I was all ears.
Wet Trident’s debut, Power Fails and Other Foreign Delights, does not disappoint. It’s chock full of angular guitars, vocal melodies and pounding drums – all candy for the ears. Check out “Miserably Visible” below, it’s sure to make any fans of Superchunk sit up and take notice.
Power Fails and Other Foreign Delights is out now and available digitally and on cassette (via Like Young Records) from Wet Trident’s Bandcamp page. Enjoy.

Portland, Oregon’s Lubec is one of the the reasons I love writing for this site. There is nothing better than opening an email and having a gem (like their debut release THE THRALL) staring me in the face, daring me to click play. In this instance I am so glad that I did.
Lubec’s fuzzy, lo-fi, shoegaze meets garage-pop brand of music mixed with three-part vocal harmonies was instantly captivating and has been in heavy rotation since my first listen. Check out album opener “Almost Vince” (below) for a taste. THE THRALL is available now on cassette from Like Young Records and available digitally on Lubec’s Bandcamp page. Enjoy.
