Truculent is the moniker for Philadelphia-Primitive guitarist Dan Timlin. Since 2016 Truculent has developed his sound by blending melodic rhythmic guitar compositions with field recordings and found sounds to create atmospheric soundscapes. Truculent began as a therapeutic exercise to connect thoughts and trauma with positivity through music.
“The songs ping from instrumental guitar arrangements to confessional folk songs to guitar arrangements paired with samples. Nothing feels out of place- this is a wholly cohesive, meditative ambient record.” – Sims Hardin (u2_is_a_government_drone)
“earthy acoustic journeys that harness the aesthetic of William Tyler and the pedal steel atmospheric bliss of Suss” – Sun-13
“Another incredible release from my home base… Philly’s Truculent never disappoints.” – Sims Hardin (u2_is_a_government_drone)
