The very premise of this musical — executives borrowing an apartment to cheat on their wives — makes this show entertainment for grown-ups. If you’re cool with your older children being exposed to infidelity to the nth degree, they will likely enjoy the wit of the dialogue and the bouncy score. But take note: there is a suicide attempt and a drunk scene — not exactly fare for young ones.
Debut lp by Ridgewood, NJ shoegazers Big Troubles. It's pretty good. Parental advisory stickers not included.
"This immense new album from Big Troubles follows on from a great four-song EP for the Olde English Spelling Bee singles club, featuring the New Jersey fuzz-pop project bejewelled with pop hooks and spurts of brain-scorching noise. There's an abundance of blistering C86-style pop nuggets on here, from the distortion-surfing 'Bite Yr Tongue' to the euphorically hooked-up 'Freudian Slips'. There's an overwhelmingly fizzy, treble-some recording style here which imbues the whole thing with a hazy, nostalgic quality that reminds us of everything from My Bloody Valentine to The Jesus and Mary Chain to Dinosaur Jr at their very peak - making for one of the standout lo-fi pop records of the year bar none. Very highly recommended." -Boomkat
