What kind of music do Blake Jones and the Trike Shop play?
Theremins whir, guitars clang, melodies surprise and classic pop song forms are run through a slightly dada-ist lens.
Life-long songwriter and DIY-er Blake Jones pipes in with, “I’m only just starting to learn how powerful music is. Music can heal your spirit, stretch your mind and make you shake your tail-feathers—and those are some pretty lofty goals for a noisy little rock band.”
But perhaps the only answer needed is that written by James Gardner of the All Music Guide:
“It lands like a pure-pop present on your doorstep!”
“Felsen’s music is both smart and sexy and is always catchy. It demands repeated listening. This is for Alt Rock fans of Wilco, Radiohead, the Flaming Lips, Beck AND fans of the classic sound of Pink Floyd, the Beach Boys and the Beatles.”
