Trivial ShieldsWe featured Trivial Shields (the project of Christian Carpenter) once before, now in preparation for the upcoming Trivial Shields EP, Vassal States, he’s releasing a segue-single entitled Amerikan which is today’s Dose.

Christian says: “I spent most of last year in Istanbul and traveling around Turkey. My first time living for an extended period abroad triggered an onslaught of peripheral neuroses that remained hidden back in the familiar stream of my American life. These common mini-existential crises were a powerful frame for my experience abroad and the primary inspiration for this song.”
