Big Troubles add to the Ridgewood v.s. Glen Rock flame of pain. - Oh My Rockness

Band We Like
November 08, 2010
These guys sound British, but they're not. Actually, they are New Jersey-ish. Get ready, because there is yet another good band coming out of Ridgewood, NJ. Sheesh! Who would've thought Ridgewood would be the next Brooklyn which was the next Chicago which was the next Seattle which was the next Manchester?

This band features two dudes from another good band, Fluffy Lumbers. Big Troubles play '90s inspired indie rock shoegaze jams that are nice and fuzzy and most melodically distorted. It's instantly likable and completely accessible.

Big Troubles is for fans of The Pains of Being Pure at Heart, Black Tambourine, Velocity Girl, Yuck, Jesus & Mary Chain (light), and of course, all those bands from Ridgewood, NJ (Ducktails, Real Estate, Julian Lynch). Wow. Ridgewood, NJ now firmly on the musical map... who knew?

Big Troubles play Mercury Lounge, on Friday, November 12th, and Shea Stadium, on Saturday, November 13th.
