Akron husband-and-wife duo Trouble Books and Emeralds’ guitarist Mark McGuire have teamed up for a collaborative LP, take a breath and let that one sink in for a minute. They just released the first MP3 from the album, “Song for Reinier Lucassen’s Sphinx,” for your listening and downloading pleasure. It’s filled with the things that made me love both bands in the first place, from Trouble Books’ glittering synth loops and serene vocals, to McGuire’s instantly recognizable guitar lines. Trouble Books & Mark McGuire will be out on Bark and Hiss, and we should see a vinyl release in late May.
