HEAR THIS: Tristen

April 07. 2011 | By Sharon Payne

Debut, my ass this aint no starter album! Tristen Gaspadarek seems to effortlessly combines alt. country, pop, emo, folk and rockabilly into an eclectic collection of sweet poetry, solid vocals and catchy tunes. Live recordings of “Heart and Hope to Die; display Tristen’s Tennessee poise and classic rock posture while the hook is reminiscent of the angst of mid-90s PJ Harvey releases… and it features a cello rad!

Charlatans at the Garden Gate is something you need for your collection and Tristen is definitely someone to keep an eye on. Personal faves: “Avalanche” Sweet Hawaiian-style ukulele meets classic country, “Baby Drugsā€œ A totally fun “mind-sticker” for co-dependents and pop fans alike!
