The United Colours of Trouble Books has to be on of my favourite albums of this year.
They are a small collective from Akron, Ohio, who just make ambient/noise pop tracks in their living room. It's the perfect music for day dreamers with its elaborate orchestration, ambient fuzz and electronic distortion.
They've been putting their album out for downloading of blogs, I would put a link up but I don't know the exact rules on here about linkage. Also is ths the right place to post it?
Anyway I can't recommend them high enough. So have look at their myspace
