  • Trevor de Brauw, most likely playing at a very high volume

Trevor de Brauw, guitarist for instrumental giants Pelican and drone collective Chord, is the man who is kicking off this weekend’s Neon Marshmallow Music Festival. He’s opening tonight’s excellent lineup, which includes Greg Fox’s Guardian Alien project and, with a solo guitar set, local synth act Winbreaker. Festivalgoers who purchase a $60 four-day pass are treated to an MP3 compilation of the festival acts, and de Brauw was kind enough to premiere his comp contribution here on the Bleader. You can hear the hazy guitar track after the jump.
