free to stay
"Barsuk Records is proud to announce the addition of Smoosh to our roster. Their new record is called free to stay and it comes out June 20th. They'll be heading out on tour with The Eels to set up the release--check back for more details in the days ahead."
What do you guys think of Smoosh? They've been called indie-rock prodigies by some, an overhyped gimmick by others. As I've mentioned before, I think they fall somewhere in between. The pre-teen sisters have written some good songs, played shows with Sufjan Stevens, Cat Power, and Sleater-Kinney (among others), and there's no question they have potential. And most importantly, my 3 year-old niece loves them, and she's very picky.
Well, now that they're on Barsuk and we're going to be hearing a lot more from them, I suppose we'll find out what young Asya and Chloe are capable of. If you're unfamiliar with Smoosh, here are a couple songs that, in my opinion, hint at their talent:
Smoosh Massive Cure mp3
Head Like a Kite Noisy at the Circus mp3 (feat. Asya of Smoosh)
