Man Crush Monday: Robert Alfons of TRUST

In 2012 we were blown away by the Canadian dark-wave electro duo, TRUST’s debut album TRST. So much that we gave them a Hot Band Alert feature and then they blew us away even further at their show at the Echoplex, opening up for Oh Land and Blood Orange. Led by the handsome and lusciously baritone, Robert Alfons — the boy has […]

Trust with DZ Deathrays and Beat Band at the Echo – Photos Review – September 11, 2012

The last time we saw Trust, they stole the show from Oh Land at the Echoplex back in April. Mind you, Trust was the first slot opening act. This past Tuesday they headlined the Echo for a sold-out show. It was good, but not as good as the Echoplex show. Why? Because it was missing […]

Trust with Oh Land and Blood Orange at the Echoplex – Photos & Show Review – April 10, 2012

Last Tuesday’s Check Yo Ponytail was off the muthafuckin’ hook. It wasn’t because of the pop-electro princess, Oh Land—and it wasn’t for the one-man-band, Blood Orange (Devonté Hynes). Fans came out early to pack the Echoplex for the hottest new electronic duo, Trust. Touring in support of their debut album, TRST, it was a spectacular evening […]
