About this item

2012 marks 20 years of Thrill Jockey. The label continue celebrating by offering another out of print classic title on vinyl once again.

1997: Trans Am’s second studio album ‘Surrender To The Night’ is released. Out of print on vinyl for years, Thrill Jockey are happy to finally offer it again.

Pressed on high quality virgin vinyl, featuring all original artwork and including a download coupon for the first time.

Trans Am’s homebase moved from Tacoma Park to Washington DC for the recording of this record. Originally titled ‘Rough Justice’, ‘Surrender To The Night’ was recorded at Trans Manor as well as Chicago’s Soma and Idful Studios. John McEntire (Tortoise, The Sea & Cake) assisted in engineering. Trans Am made use of many of the fine keyboards manufactured by the Roland Company and the Casio Computer Company throughout the recording.

The record shows the band moving forward musically and achieving an even greater balance of rock and electronics.
