HHH Special: Troll
antiMusic reports: Mark is on a roll and today's special Hensch Hometown Hero is Troll, a band that delivers a multicultured, multi-genre explosion of style. Here is Mark with more.

On their 2001 debut, Que Son Los Trolls Y En Que Nos Ayudan? (henceforth referred to simply as Que), Troll mix varying degrees of J-Rock (a slang term for Japanese pop rock), brit-pop, 1960's-1970's American West Coast Garage rock, Kyuss stoner vibes, Pixie freakouts, Latin beats, Texicana folk, and straight new-age noise rock to make a band so diverse it is unique. This represents a perfect analogy for America itself; how did a country formed almost entirely out of immigrants (i.e. unoriginal inhabitants) go on to represent something wholly separate and unique from anything else in the entire world? Troll come across in the exact same way; on one hand, music fans can probably detect a million different styles and influences here. On the other side of the divide, Troll blends those influences so well that everyone will swear they're hearing a musical revolution that has never been done before. .. see full story for the rest of the review- Click Here for the Full Story
