about

True Deceiver is the new sludgy post-metal electronic project from Portland, Oregon based electronic-folk producer Cars & Trains. It sits in a heavier, darker end of the spectrum from his work under the Fake Four, Inc affiliated work under the Cars & Trains name.

The synthesized hammering of drums, hissing static, and heavily detuned baritone guitar provide a stark contrast to the echo laden melodies of the vocals and brooding, fluttering cello. The lush shoegazer sensibility and immense wall of sound have a level of energy that comes as surprising to those familiar with earlier, more subdued work from Filepp.

The heavy pulsating guitar and distorted electronic drums bring to mind influences like Godflesh or later Killing Joke, while the sense of melody, synth lines, and flickering cello parts evoke lighter acts like My Bloody Valentine or Slowdive.

True Deceiver is an exciting departure for Filepp and has much in the works for 2015 and beyond.

Track Name: Tiny Black Drone (Rockets Aimed True)
tiny black drone / flying like a black bird
tries to find it's home / over targets unknown
engines mark time / to a faceless firestorm
voiceless, crosshaired / no conscious control

rockets aimed true

deserts, streets, homes / carrying branches with thorns
roaring all it's dark songs / to violent gods' names unknown
silences gives way / to a fiery swan-song
marking it’s prey / like a flying valkyrie
Track Name: Between Our Teeth
the light
of the dawn
reflected off
of what we saw
of our selves
in the air
in our arms
in our hands

we awoke
to find it all
falling down
in a cloud
of dust and smoke
all of the things
we'd never heard
and never dreamed
and all our thoughts
all in the air
smoldering
were never there
like the wind
through our hair
balanced on
a knifeblade’s edge
words we kept
between our teeth
between the moon
and the sea
see in our eyes
the sorts of things
that keep us moving
keep us alive

and fighting
for all the things
we’ll never leave
behind, unsafe
