“What are they saying is the PTC?” That appropriated question is the title of the debut long player from Pink Trash Can, a collaborative project from Sophie Weil (Syko Friend), Robbie Cody (Behavior, Wand) and Evan Burrows (Behavior, Wand). Tracked in March, 2020 and assembled over the following year in their shared Los Angeles home, “What are they saying…” is an unwitting effusion of pyrite tears, plucked up and hung like little tongues in the mouths of cartoon bells. Lysergic in its free associations, grounded in its emphatic sense of location, this record is shaky close-up video rendered in big, shivering, painted pixels. This record is a mammoth sunflower growing beside a Direct TV dish, both of their wide open faces searching the empty sky for sunlight and signal. This record is a lullaby you hear behind the door of someone else’s room as you pad through the dawnlit house in muddy slippers. This record arrives by delivery, wrapped in a Jolly Roger flag with Joe Cool smiling where a skull should be suspended above two crossed bones. There’s a note still barely attached to the package with Scotch tape, typewritten in all caps on bootleg company stationary: “NO DEAL”
