My Teenage Stride, Softlightes...

My Teenage Stride

To Live and Die in the Airport Lounge [MP3]

Terror Bends [MP3]

"At just under 40 minutes, Ears Like Golden Bats gathers a collection of captivation guitar pop gems that manage to combine fatalism with not-yet-defeated hope, which seems to be an inherent quality of many of Smith’s compositions. The references to Phil Spector, the Jesus & Mary Chain, and Television Personalities are still present in well-crafted and immediate tracks like “We’ll Meet at Emily’s”, “That Should Stand for Something”, and “Terror Bands”. They’re hook-laden songs that will have you humming all day long—you might clap your hands or snap your fingers too. Songs like “Reversal” or “Genie of New Jersey” and “To Live and Die in the Airport Lounge” expand on those influences, sounding more atmospheric, reminiscent of the Chills and the pop side of John Cale and Brian Eno." -- Becalmed Records
