Trust Punks at Lucha Lounge in Auckland

Day 11 of May Month of Madness Marathon for NZ Music Month comes from progressively-minded Auckland band Trust Punks with “Gordian Knot” from their very fine album/ mini-album “Discipline”

When I discovered Trust Punks “Prone Hold” during last year’s May Marathon I described them as the Yes of noise rock. I meant it as a compliment.

And “Gordian Knot”, along with the rest of the LP, doesn’t disappoint. This is complex, unusually constructed post-punk post-rock guitar-rock full of twists and turns but also full of pop hooks and packing enough ideas and flourishes into each song to stand out as something special.

The LP should be in your local record store. if not, order it from the Spunk Records online shop.
