New album: Mick Trouble || It’s Mick Trouble’s Second LP

So here we are. After It’s The Mike Trouble EP, Here’s The Mick Trouble LP, we arrived at It’s Mick Trouble’s Second LP. And like the difference in release titles is minimal, so too is the difference in Mick Trouble’s sound on the three releases hardly noticable. For which I’m grateful, because Mick Trouble (aka Jed Smith of My Teenage Stride and Jeanines) already is possession of the winning formula for creating underground pop hits.

It’s Mick Trouble’s Second LP offers more of the jangly chiming guitars, crisp bass work, hyperactive drums, pop hooks, and Television Personalities worship we’ve come to associate with Mick Trouble. Most of the record is vintage British underground pop that sounds authentically ’80s, but there also some fun exceptions like the Zombiesesque ’60s hit The Bleeding Downs. Currently, my favorite track is Top Of The Flops, a song I’m not ashamed to admit having played five times in a row just now.

It’s Mick Trouble’s Second LP is out now through Emotional Response. You should get it, probably, really, surely.
