TROUBLE BOOKS + HONG KONG IN THE 60S
Thu 11th Aug @ CB2 basement, Norfolk St, Cambridge
Doors 8pm; £5 adv from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/124692
Hailing from Akron, Ohio, Trouble Books are currently on a roll having just finished an album with Emeralds and komische guitarist Mark McGuire. A perfect collaboration, as their starry-eyed, lo-fi blend of pop, electronica and folk feels as though it should soundtrack lazy days and evenings where you watch the sun set and the stars rise. Trouble Books will provide the perfect sounds to fill an August evening.
HONG KONG IN THE 60S
Contemporary pop music filtered through a kaleidoscope of 60s and 70s retro-fitted and bookish influences. Hong Kong in the 60s sound like Stereolab or Broadcast if they’d enjoyed wearing cardigans and listened to Belle and Sebastian, or Portishead if they’d enjoyed more evenings watching Top of the Pops. Having recently been reviewed, enthusiastically, in The Wire, a chance to see them for yourselves.
