Future Islands frontman Sam Herring is now recording music with venerable hip-hop producer Madlib under the moniker Trouble Knows Me. This isn’t Herrings first brush with hip-hop; when he isn’t fronting his synth-pop band, he rhymes as Hemlock Ernst, and he’s quite good at it.
Herring and Madlib will release a 12" EP on September 1 called Trouble Knows Me, via Lib’s own Madlib Invazion imprint.
