Format: 7"
Label: Blackburn
Country: USA
Price: $6.50
"Big Troubles are a duo based out of Ridgewood, NJ (home to Real Estate, Ducktails, Fluffy Lumbers, etc). Alex Craig and Ian Drennan started Big Troubles in the summer of 2009 after playing in many bands together since early adolescence. The songs on this EP were some of the first the band recorded that summer in Ians basement, surrounded by guitars, a multitude of pedals, a drum machine, and a 4-track. This 7" is a chunk of overwhelmingly woozy guitar pop that transcends the thinness of most lo-fi music of this era. Leading off the release is an alternate version of "Freudian Slips" that has been floating around the interweb over the past few months." - Blackburn. LP on Olde English Spelling Bee "soon"..

"Kicking off the new OESB 7" series with a 4 track single by Big Troubles. International playboy Matt Mondanile (Real Estate, Ducktails) discovered Big Troubles and urged Olde English Spelling Bee to sign these guys on the spot for their fresh industrial shoegaze pop sound. Done and done. Features home recordings by Alex Craig and Ian Drennan who split songwriting and vocal duties down the middle. They are joined live by Luka Usmiani (No Demons Here) on bass and Sam Franklin (Fluffy Lumbers) on drums. Their debut full-length album, Worry, will be out on OESB in July." - Olde English Spelling Bee.

Artist: BIG TROUBLES
Title: Worry
Format: LP
Label: Olde English Spelling Bee
Country: USA
Price: $16.00
"The very premise of this musical -- executives borrowing an apartment to cheat on their wives -- makes this show entertainment for grown-ups. If youre cool with your older children being exposed to infidelity to the nth degree, they will likely enjoy the wit of the dialogue and the bouncy score. But take note: there is a suicide attempt and a drunk scene -- not exactly fare for young ones. Debut LP by Ridgewood, NJ shoegazers Big Troubles. Its pretty good. Parental advisory stickers not included." With glossy full-color insert and download coupon. "This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. Theres an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing Bite Yr Tongue to the euphorically hooked-up Freudian Slips. Theres an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak -- making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none. Very highly recommended." - Boomkat.
