So I've finally managed to confirm a show for next week for the one and only Trouble Books in London.
It'll be downstairs at the lovely Betsey Trotwood in Clerkenwell, doors will be at 8pm, tickets £6 in adv (link coming as soon as its processed) or £8 on the door. Support will be announced soon.
This will be the first time the band have ever played in the UK and I've been waiting for this show for over 3 years so please do come down, celebrate and listen to the beautiful music of Keith and Linda.
If you don't know Trouble Books, go over to the bandcamp page nd listen to their recent gorgeous album http://ownrecords.bandcamp.com/album/gathered-tones.
Trouble Books cultivate garden of music lush with odd sounds, loops and drones to walk through and explore. Handmade experimental pop songs blossom from under synthesizer swells and guitar clouds, later to be buried in noise or drift into ambient atmospherics.
Its been a huge trip for me personally first talking to the band three years ago and then starting MIE to release their records over in Europe on vinyl and now finally getting to organise a small tour for the band, and every step of the way its been a joy to work with Keith and Linda, so it would be great to see some of you there to celebrate Trouble Books arrival in the UK!
'a perfect autumnal record, wrapping itself around you like a warm blanket. Nigh on perfect.' Drowned in Sound
'These drowsy, hazy songs suggest an alternate reality Brian Wilson making crackly, cheapo synth ditties in his bedroom.' The Guardian
'Ramshackle songcraft with a somehow otherworldly quality that melts in your ears. Highly Recommended.' - Boomkat
