Mo Troper, who formerly fronted lynchpin Portland punk bands Your Rival, TeenSpot, and Sancho, has released two solo records to critical acclaim – 2016’s ‘Beloved’ and 2017’s ‘Exposure & Response’.
His third record, ‘Natural Beauty’, is due out on Tender Loving Empire in early 2020.
Pitchfork says “Troper’s gift are undeniable.”
NPR says “Troper writes grinningly great power-pop songs.”
KEXP says “Troper weaves narratives and parables with a cast of delightfully obtuse characters that would give a Daniel Clowes’ graphic novel a run for its money.”
Willamette Week says Troper “[makes] earnest adult music that retains the reckless energy of youth.”
