Triple Ds presents:
An English Place | Ben Trickey Full Band
  • $8

Book Club
Atlanta's Book Club, a Rural Pop band (featuring members of Cassavetes and Oryx & Crake), re-imagines the classic marriage between him & her vocals and carefully crafted orchestration by transforming their heritage into sound unbound by history.

The songs blend classic influences like Cash, Petty, Dylan, and Reed, with a country, pop, and indie spin. Singer-songwriter Robbie Horlick strums a nylon-stringed acoustic, leading the 7-piece band through his honest tales of love and heartache, with an interpretation as modern as it is hauntingly timeless.

Book Club's tunes are reverent and referential, yet fascinatingly fresh. They are not reinventing the wheel, but perhaps taking us back to a time when you might find one made out of wood. Book Club may be "more folk than most folk", but popular music rides shotgun in their vehicle.
An English Place
An English Place is Atlanta via Brooklyn rockers Will Raines, Amanda Morelli, and Cayce Means. Sometimes subdued, sometimes loud three piece semi-power pop.
Ben Trickey Full Band
"Honest record. Real shit."
-Marc Maron
"Ben Trickey’s songs are about as dark as country songs get...he taps into all those lonesome cowboys—Prine, Van Zandt, even contemporaries like Jason Molina..."
-Matthew Fiander

Ben Trickey is a layman's existentialist, a dive-bar philosopher both driven and paralyzed by a deep fascination with life's greatest question. In his songs, he perpetually contemplates his purpose, and with a wounded, wary croon, his dark indie-folk struggles for hope in the face of desolation.

Mined from personal experience, Trickey's writing finds metaphors in the grime and grim sentiments of the Dirty South and his hometown of Atlanta. He's battled his insecurities playing hushed sets opening for luminaries such as Jason Isbell, Phosphorescent, Vic Chesnutt and Damien Jurado, in the process earning accolades from outlets like No Depression, PopMatters and even a shout-out from comedian Marc Maron.
