Romantic Comedy - SLUMBERLAND
FILTER Grade: 83%

Think of the best rock bands of the ’90s—Smashing Pumpkins, Wilco, Blur, Dinosaur Jr., My Bloody Valentine, for a few—Big Troubles sound like all of them, but more. They hit that special spot of generating what at first might seem like genre resurrection, but every squelchy guitar roar is squelchier, somehow more dripping with that perfect gauze of distortion. It’s the songs alone that kill you on Romantic Comedy, and that’s a good thing.
