I don't think there's a band out there more Western Massachusetts than Editrix. The Easthampton based trio plays a mix of old school sounding indie rock with just enough quirk to make it sound like Western MA and an odd pop sensibility to sound like 2022. Their latest single, "One Truck Gone," is an oddball mix of all of these sounds. It doesn't quite do the classic loud/quiet/loud thing, but Editrix wildly change the tempo frequently enough to make a three minute song sound like multiple songs going on much longer. It's hypnotic with jerky, crunching guitars and swirling drums, which may be a first since how do you get drums to swirl? "One Truck Gone" could have been a total mess, and I'm sure some people will think it is one. But this isn't for them. If you like your indie rock unique and at times odd, you probably already love Editrix.
You can listen to "One Truck Gone" below. Editrix II: Editrix Goes to Hell (which is seriously my favorite album title in years) is due out June 3, and can be pre-ordered through Bandcamp. For more on Editrix, check out the band's Instagram.
