- Love at Dusk by Trouble Books
1 review. Write a review for us »
The first thing that struck me about this record by husband/wife duo Trouble Books is that the song ‘All Flowers’ borrows the chorus from ‘All Flowers In Time Bend Toward The Sun’, a long forgotten collaboration between Jeff Buckley and Elizabeth Frazer. Being a huge fan of both Buckley and Cocteau Twins I just had to give this a listen.
I’m not let down in the slightest either. This is a pretty little understated album of minimal synth pop. Keith Freund and Linda Lejsovka make fantastic atmospheric music with the simplest of pop melodies and drifting synth sounds. Imagine The XX but with the ghostly shimmer of Boards Of Canada, all played out with a sense of isolation and just a sprinkle of darkness to it.
Standout tracks are the Velvet Underground-esque ‘The Very End, Again’, a dreamy ‘Dawn Behind The Clouds’ with its fluttering, treated guitar and the aforementioned ‘All Flowers’, which is is like Durutti Column meets Cocteau Twins with space-age synths.
By the way, this is limited to 400. 399, actually, now I've bagged my own copy!
