Little Falls Trophy brings nostalgic indie-rock/alternative vibes on “Dutch Motel”

New Jersey-based indie-rock/alternative outfit Little Falls Trophy, the musical brainchild of Doug Albregts, has just released the album, “Dutch Motel.” Doug sat down with @skopemag to talk about this wonderful collection of songs.

@skopemag: Tell us about your amazing new album.

Doug Albregts: It’s a nice travel back in time. It’s more melodic and dialed-back compared to my first album. It certainly covers the gamut of emotions. It’s reflective in some capacity, yet forward-looking in others, but dialed-in with love and compassion. Of course, there’s all the anxiety in between. I feel the album is a sing-along journey for those who give it a spin.

@skopemag: We love “Thursday’s Friday.” What inspired that song?

Doug Albregts: It’s about our addiction to social media, and the impact it is having on the passage of time and how we live. Everything is morphing into one another at a crazy rate – people, days, and activities. It’s like one long weekend of never-ending electronic debauchery! It kind of pokes fun at the idea of people living other people’s lives.

@skopemag: What is your favorite song on the album?

Doug Albregts: Well, that seems to change by the day! I’m digging “My Little Sunshine” for that playful little love song thing. It’s calling out to the people you love and what it is you love about them. It’s got a nice hook, and it tends to lure you in the more you listen to it.

@skopemag: What are the recurring themes on this album? What do you hope the message of this album is for listeners overall?

Doug Albregts: Life is full of emotions, good and bad. I think this album will tell people it’s all good, and that life is a beautiful thing. Make the most of it.

@skopemag: How would you describe your music?

Doug Albregts: I would have to say it’s a modern throwback of sorts. If you like the ’80s, ’90s, and early 2000s time period of music, I’ve got something for you. I like hooks and melodies that get people singing. I think there is something here for everyone.
