Trivial ShieldsWe featured Trivial Shields (the project of Christian Carpenter) twice before, now he’s released his EP Vassal States. He says of the EP: “After much protracted preparation, hesitation and self-vexation, Vassal States, the EP I wrote and recorded while living and teaching English in Istanbul, is finally available for your listening enjoyment. Vassal States, is a concise, experimental pop album, tinged with sprinkles of electronica and finished with a heavy dose of existentialist culture-shock. The attached YouTube link is a trailer for the album that explains it’s creation further.”

It was written & Recorded in Istanbul Jan – Jun 2013, mixed in Early Winter 2014 by Jake Birch & Christian Carpenter, and released 23 September 2014.
