Smoke Notes

After letting us leaf through the autumnal debut of End Of A Hollywood Bedtime Story, then shaking loose the Montreal snow from our winter coats with the sadly overlooked No Cities Left, Prog-Pop revolutionaries The Dears have raised the sun for their glorious third season. Gang Of Losers is perfect for those lazy sun drenched summer days with friends and a bottle or 2, a perfect balance of rocking out numbers and more delicate moments to quench your thirst.
The Dears manage to take a million musical references such as a stroll from Kid A Radiohead into a 50's pop croon in "I Fell Deep", Or the Pink Floyd-esque "Fear Made The World Go Around", yet manage to keep them firmly locked in The Dears sound. Murray Lightburn's gorgeous voice has grown in strength (if that was possible) and he can purr the mids and then soar into the highs and yank it down into a scream or a growl without effort.
A true classic in the making and already climbing the high rotation list at Smoke HQ, "Gang Of Losers" Brings out a more adult The Dears which will charm a whole wave of new followers without turning their backs on the devoted, no-one will be disappointed. And... it comes with a Limited Edition Australia/NZ Only bonus disc which has 2 extra tracks and acoustic versions of "There Goes My Outfit" and "Ticket To Immortality", recorded Live on Triple J during a recent tour of Australia. But only if you're quick. Recommended.
