LOCKN’ may have happened weeks ago, but the footage from Lazy Lightning is still coming!
Gin was one of the highlights of the 8/26 show, but didn’t resemble the Gin you would have heard 20, 10 or even 5 years ago. Phish.net member HDORNE describes the ‘sonic ocean’ that Trey creates:
Trey is really combing the depths of the sonic ocean with his pedals right now, and I love it. Sometimes the tension and discordance become a lot to take, but he knows exactly what he’s doing and leads the listener to safety. It’s a new style of musical leadership for him. Rather than shredding and wailing, of which he’s admittedly a master, he’s creating new textures and landscapes and inviting his bandmates and the listener to follow. Sometimes it works, sometimes not as much, but it’s intriguing to hear him putting things in test tubes and hearing what happens.
And thanks to LL you can relive this jam in beautiful 4K!
