Trouble Books is husband-and-wife Keith Freund and Linda Lejsovka from Akron, Ohio who use synthesizer and guitar to bury pop songs in ambient noise. Their sounds can go from delicate folk finger-picking to deep drones to sequencer-driven loops rather quickly and often overlap several zones simultaneously. The duo does not tend to tour often and instead stays at home recording with friends and neighbors including members of synth-drone heroes Emeralds.

Some words about Trouble Books' LPs:
"An album awash in fuzz and atmosphere while retaining a low-key pop sensibility... this LP is the beginning of a rapid ascent in Trouble Books' trajectory." - Skyscraper Magazine
"It falls from the speakers like swirling orange leaves...enduring and nigh-on perfect." - Drowned in Sound
