Brendan Benson – a colleague of Jack White who is known for his exceptionally well-crafted power pop records – produces the band and he favors a crackling live feel, emphasizing the Howlin' Brothers' loose, natural chemistry that, in turn, suggests their versatility. Unlike so many bluegrass groups, chops aren't the priority for the Howlin' Brothers – they prefer groove and feel, to bounce ideas off each other and their various guest musicians. This doesn't mean they can't solo – they can and they do often throughout Trouble – but Benson and the band accentuate interplay, which means this is a visceral record, engaging just as music.
