Album Review

Earlimart's later work has been worlds away from its early efforts, and with Treble & Tremble, songwriter Aaron Espinoza seems to find a comfortable ground for which he was always looking. Somewhere between the intriguing introspection of Elliott Smith and the lush indie pop of Grandaddy (the record was co-produced by the latter's Jim Fairchild), Earlimart continues on the same path as Everyone Down Here. Reflecting his troublesome times leading up to the album (death of a friend, breakup with girlfriend), his matured writing gives way to loss and love ("Unintentional Tape Manipulations"), held in a cradle of warm keyboard and acoustic guitar. Some moments are upbeat indie pop ("The Hidden Track" and "Sounds"), but most of this is dreamy despite its slightly gloomy textures. A few interludes, like "808 Crickets," tie it all together, and you forget that Earlimart was ever compared to the Pixies.

Customer Reviews

Excellent, and a must-have for Elliott lovers

This album is dedicated to Elliott Smith, who was a close friend of the band and lead singer Aaron Espinoza, who wrote the songs while mourning the loss of his friend. Beautiful, moving in both lyric and sound, Treble and Tremble is a shining telling of love and loss that manages to do so without being depressing. A worthy tribute to one of the best songwriters of our time, and a gem of a record on its own merits.

This is the music

Earlimart is the band that leads people in the right direction in music taste. They're a colaboration of Keane, the Shins, Augustana with touches of other great bands together. If you like these guys, you may like Bright Eyes and possibly Damien Rice. Keep it comin Earlimart and buy this album for the sake of man.


Whispered eloquence in the vein of travis with a bit of quirkyness.


Formed: 1996 in Los Angeles, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '90s, '00s

The coed members of Earlimart favor a midtempo approach to their start-stop motions of experimental post-punk, dreamy indie pop, and folky undertones. Named after a small California town located between Los Angeles and Fresno, Earlimart's unconventional songwriting structure drew early comparisons to the Pixies, Sonic Youth, X, and Sparklehorse. This attention resulted in a deal with Devil in the Woods Records, which released the albums Filthy Doorways and Kingdom of Champions in the winter of 2000....
