Trevor Childs’ Joyful “Deathwish”

Trevor Childs has a “Deathwish” but it sounds like he’s enjoying it just fine. A comical and amusing jaunt through San Francisco, from this Berkeley troubadour, in which he ponders the exact method of his demise. A couple of approaches might earn him a Darwin Award! This is sort of Jim Carroll’s “People Who Died” only in reverse.

These Aren’t Your Daddy’s Golden Arches

Nothing like a toe-tappin’, country back woods number on a lazy Sunday. But far from the standard Nashville lyrical fare, this spry acoustic number evokes the paradoxes of America in 2010. A nice unusual tempo shift helps propel the story, like a beat up muscle car speeding across state lines at the height of summer.

Sharing a nice Terrified moment with Trevor Childs

Here’s a gr8 postmodern lullaby of sorts from Berkeley, CA’s Trevor Childs. Sounds like it could have come straight out of the Motown studio, if same were occupied by angst-ridden college radio addicted indie rockers. Almost like a sweet, lilting love song but the lyrics bring an interesting twist. Sweet, sentimental and darkly hilarious.
