Guest Post: Big Troubles

Ian Drennan and Alex Craig of Big Troubles say:
We first heard "Mercury Girl" in early high school, and immediately latched on to Cleaners From Venus and their sentimental, melodramatic '80s pop balladeering, which is a big positive in our book. It wasn't until many years later that we realized they had produced a vast, brilliant, and largely home-recorded discography of cassette releases. On "Helpless", you can hear how their tape-centric aesthetic predates much of today's lo-fi warped pop scene.
