A Silver Mt. Zion is led by founding Godspeed You Black Emperor! guitarist Efrim, with help from fellow Godspeed members, Sophie and Thierry. For the band's second record, the line-up has expanded to six players, including Becky, Ian, and Jessica, and re-named as The Silver Mt. Zion Memorial Orchestra and Tra-la-la Band. "Born Into Trouble...," while remaining anchored in an underlying sadness and mourning over this failed world, reveals a decidedly angrier, more urgent face as this phenomenal ensemble charts ever-widening sonic and emotional terrain.
