Romantic Comedy

Romantic Comedy by Big Troubles
Released: Sep 2011
Label: Slumberland Records
Big Troubles' 2011 Slumberland Records debut could fit between Dinosaur Jr. and Smashing Pumpkins on any indie-loving suburban kid's shelf of '90s classics. The band pinpoints the nexus between '80s indie rock, Britpop, dream pop and shoegaze in a cozily retro package. Opening with the jangly "She Smiles for Pictures," Romantic Comedy embraces the ennui of any good slacker: "I just want some fun for once"; "Love is in the air, but I don't care/ 'Cause I don't want to love anymore." Highlights like "Sad Girls" and "Minor Keys" will have Billy Corgan wishing he could still write this well.
