Trouble In Mind releases The Hollows and Estrogen Highs – 60s-drenched girl pop and ramshackle punk jams

By on May 5, 2012

Started in Chicago in 2009 as a way to release 7″s with perfect pop songs, Troublein Mindexpanded their catalogue of highly praised LPs with releases from Hollowsand Estrogen Highs.

Taking the girl-group influence of their previous recordings and introducing that innocence to sophisticated and nuanced sonic territories on their sophomore LP, Vulture, Hollows have time warped their 60s wall-of-sound into a thoroughly modern effort – give a listen to album track “V Is For Vulture.”  For more info on Hollows including press praise and interviews, click here.

Exploding out of New Haven, CT, Estrogen Highs released their newest collection of ramshackle and catchy-as-hell punk jams on Irrelevant Future.  The project that began as Stefan Christensen playing and recording everything solo in 2007 has become a fully jelled, rock-solid, full-band quartet.  Full of the off-kilter weirdness that Estrogen Highs fans have come to love, Irrelevant Future also features one of the most straight ahead pop songs of their career, “I Wanna Be Tall,”– of which Imposesaid – “theoretically, this song is what all my dreams are made of, and if the rest of their upcoming LP on Trouble in Mind sounds like this, we may be talking Instant Classic status.”
