Stream the Trouble Books & Mark McGuire Collab

Trouble Books teamed up with EmeraldsMark McGuire for a collaboration that is as beautifully serene as it is monumental, marking McGuire's first outing as a vocalist. Track titles are a nod to nature. "Floating through Summer" is filled with halcyon warmth, while "Hoop Earrings in the Slush" has a more somber tone. The eight-track, self-titled LP's minimal approach to sound bridges the fine line between ambient pop and nature relaxation tapes. Although meditative, Trouble Books & Mark McGuire never spares a dull moment. Its intermittent percussive clatter sounds are similar to cicadas, while the subtle guitar loops build gradually like lapping pools of water as the album comes quietly to its inevitable end. --Jasmine Zhu, Altered Zones
