Oakland’s Kid Trails is the brainchild of Oakland’s Patrick Jeffords, who writes and performs all instruments for Kid Trails, with the exception of drums, which are handled by Andy Woodward. Jeffords moved to Oakland about two years to make music with some high profile friends in the local scene, but I’ll let the quality of his work stand on its own for now. Kid Trails makes fuzzy, dark pop that sounds not quite like anything out there today, although it did make me think of that great Edwyn Collins track from 20(!) years ago.
Jeffords is still figuring out how to make Kid Trails shows happen, so for now enjoy their four-song EP below.
