Today, Trevor Sensor has released the title track from his upcoming release, Andy Warhol’s Dream, and it is yet another solid track from the gentleman. While his earlier work reminded me a whole lot of The Tallest Man on Earth, it seems that Sensor has found his stride in expanding his sound towards an americana direction. You still get the ever haggard and rough vocals that you’ve come to love from this artist, but the piano really shines as a bright and clean counterpart to the grit of Sensor’s voice. Take a listen below and then go pre-order his new album here.

If you’ve been following along with the success of young Trevor Sensor, you’ll know that he’s signed to Jagjaguwar and has been getting some much deserved attention. It pleases me to announce that with this signing he’s also just announced his debut album,Andy Warhol’s Dream,and shared a new single/video. “High Beams” is below, which features Sensor and his signature scraggily pipes touting his guitar in front of various landscape shots with some backup dancers doing their thing. It’s a silly concept for a great track, and I’m digging the fast pace of this song and americana bounce to the piano. Take a listen.

We’ve been telling y’all about Trevor Sensor for sometime now, so when are you going to finally going to take a listen already? Sensor’s latest effort, “The Money Gets Bigger,” expands Sensor’s singer/songwriter sound tot brand new heights with some production help from Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado. Sensor has amplified his sound with a backing band and the result is a bit of a toe tapper– there’s a great bounce to the tune in the piano and beats that puts a thread of americana to the music. Take a listen and watch the video below.
I won’t lie to you. Every time I hear Trevor Sensor, I think of Tallest Man on Earth. But, that being said, I still quite like his sound, and having seen him live, he seems to have even more of an edge to his performance and attitude. If you listen closely, you can hear brief moments where he unleashes that attitude just a touch.He also possesses a slightly grim perspective on things; it is the one thing that does set him apart, making his songs worthy of your listening enjoyment. This looks to be a one-off digital single being released by Jagjaguwar on May 27th.
It’s really a pleasant surprise when an artist you discover in the trenches of the internet manages to hit it big… I mean, I posted about Trevor Sensor last June,trying to share with you all the Tallest Man on Earth-esque vibes of this youngster and now he’s on the incredible Jagjaguwar lineup. With this news, he’s shared the video below for “Texas Girls and Jesus Christ,” which is a song off of his upcoming debut EP by that same name. It’s a little bluesier than The Tallest Man, and the full band sound that joins him at the end makes for a bar-stomping good time. Take a listen.
There’s something about the isolated sound of just a man with his guitar and his soulful voice that always manages to capture my attention. So when I heard this track, “The Reaper Man,” by young gun Trevor Sensor, I was immediately reminded of The Tallest Man On Earth and enamored with the raw power of Sensor’s vocals as it winds through the catchy chorus of this song. Though this track may be a few months old, I think it’s important that it reaches your ears now before Sensor really takes off.
