Trans Am is a three-piece band which originated in Bethesda, Maryland that was one of the originators of "post-rock" in the mid 1990s. Their work centers on a cerebrally robotic, usually instrumental, semi-danceable, minimalistic format, with influences including Krautrock, heavy metal, hardcore punk, synthpop, electronic music, and folk music

Trans Am have spent quite some time making deeply experimental electronic albums albeit for very experienced ears. Suddenly they unleash this beauty of an album on us which, yes, still has the trademark electronic oddities in it, but at the same time it's absolutely impossible to categorise Or maybe i should call it post rock, or as one UK magazine labelled it: "post-post-rock". These guys are on to something, and Liberation is there most consistent effort yet, political propaganda aside. Until now, Trans Am's albums have been spotty with 50-70% of the content being great and the rest, filler and experimentation with sound textures and colors.
