Big Troubles were recently interviewed by WFMU's Beware of the Blog. The Ridgewood group discussed their obsession with outer-space, Nickelodeon nostalgia and their next record, which they apparently just finished tracking. Be sure to check out the interview over at WFMU. Excerpt below. Big Troubles hit Maxwell's and The Bell House before heading to Europe with Ducktails & Julian Lynch next month.
We just finished tracking our second record with the amazingly talented Mitch Easter who fronted Let's Active and has recorded bands from R.E.M. to Pavement.
So right off the bat there is a drastic sonic shift in that the production is much cleaner. We'd also like to think that the songwriting is stronger, and the songs are certainly more melodic and dynamic. It marks the first recordings with the full Big Troubles band, with our drummer Sam Franklin and bassist Luka Usmiani, since "Worry" was recorded by just Alex and Ian at home with a cruddy drum machine. In some ways it sounds like an entirely new band and in other ways it just sounds like a cleaner Big Troubles.
