-GRMLN is the musical project of 21-year-old, Yoodoo Park. He was born in Kyoto, Japan and moved to southern California at a young age (though he still goes back to Japan every summer). Yoodoo started playing music at the age of 13 when he was given a bass guitar and has been playing music ever since.
During the summer of 2010, Yoodoo started recording relaxing songs for himself to listen to in his car during lazy summer afternoons. The Explore EP, captures this time in Yoodoo’s life with clean sounding guitar rhythms and a mixture of drowsy melodies. Yoodoo’s 2013 full-length, Empire, was less of a follow-up and more of a departure. Empire’s upbeat rock songs and ‘90s pop-punk influenced sound eventually led to the alternatively stormy and peaceful tunes of Soon Away. The new album is much more aggressive than previous releases—a world away from the dreamy sweetness of Explore. Soon Away reflects on the desires and regrets that come with age and experience. It’s GRMLN’s most mature work yet, and also the band’s catchiest.

-"Much in the way the BC Post-Rock fans line up for new releases by EITS, Caspian, & Hammock; "MOURNING" should be on your MUST HAVE IT LIST!
This spacey sonic adventure ticks all the Classic Genre sound checkpoints.
Brilliant Musicianship start to finish.
A Very worthwhile investment.......
You simply must take the journey!"-
Hannah van Loon
from San Francisco, CA
-Tanukichan is the new solo venture of Hannah van Loon, who recently left Trails and Ways after a four year stint with the band. Just yesterday she released "Bitter Medicine," her first recording as Tanukichan. It's a lovely introduction to her new project, with an (almost) never-ending bassline leading the way and constant harmonies that flowing from melodic to eerie and back again as they move. You can tell van Loon had a strong influence on the sound of Trails and Ways (and vice versa), but it's clearly a new direction. Give a listen to "Bitter Medicine" below.
