TRUST takeover: Anne Carson + Flannery O’Connor
Two authors really were big inspirations for me while writing this album. Anne Carson's Autobiography of Red was one of them. She's an absolute genius! I even named a song on my record about the main character Geryon. This is my favourite line from the book, ''They were two super…
TRUST takeover: Ace of Base
I know that I've had a lot of press regarding my love of Ace of Base. But it's undeniable how influential they continue to be for me. Just look how much FUN they're having in this video! In all honesty Young and Proud is definitely one of the best pop songs ever written...
TRUST takeover: Walter Van Beirendonck
It's crazy how much exciting fashion comes out of Belgium. Walter Van Beirendonck has been doing INSANE things for decades now, one of my favs being this Wild and Lethal Trash video from 1996. His latest collection doesn't disappoint either...
TRUST takeover: Mozart’s Sister
One upcoming album this year that I'm BEYOND excited about is Montreal's Mozart's Sister. She's released a bunch of gems to date that I've had on constant repeat. She's also going to be touring with TRUST in the States and Canada this April - bonus...

TRUST takeover: Tarantula X
Tarantula X is definitely the most exciting thing coming out of Toronto right now. It's at one point super murky mud and the next it's the most euphoric prance ever. Definitely fulfills the love I have for B.B.E and ATB. He did a SIIICK remix of 'Rescue, Mister'  -…
TRUST x Gorilla vs. Bear takeover
TRUST's excellent new full-length Joyland is out this week on Arts & Crafts, and to commemorate the occasion — like we’ve done in the past with Grimes, SHLOHMO, and a few others — we’re handing over the keys to TRUST mastermind Robert Alfons t…
Trust – Are We Arc?

TRUST unveils another dreamy, tender highlight from his excellent new LP Joyland, out March 4 on Arts & Crafts:
premiere: Trust – Capitol

Here's the second great single to be unveiled from Trust's forthcoming LP Joyland, a beautiful record that his esteemed label calls "an eruption of guts, eels, and joy". I feel like this is the moment they're referring to, specifically: on "Capitol", Robert Alfons' dark, ominousl…
