Album Review

Reviewed 2019-09-23 
LA-based New Zealand-esque indie pop band “Smokescreens” hit back with their second album, Used to Yesterday. After a careful gleaning of the album title, it could be considered ironic, seeing as how it’s a slight change from the Kiwi noise pop from their eponymous album which begs to ask the question – can you get used to yesterday? Used to Yesterday, unfolds as an animated portrait full of the characters and desires that define a life, and reveals a sound alive with possibility and anticipation.

1.Someone New (2:49) Fuzzy guitars painting an easy listening, simplistic, melodious journey.
2.Used To Yesterday (2:19) Static power-pop with melodic shinny impulses.
3.The Lost Song (3:14) Fantastic blend of kiwi and power pop.
4.Jolly Jane (2:06) Upbeat standout track, makes it difficult not to listen to over and over again.
5.Buddy (3:41) Melancholic garage wall of sound takes you on a nostalgic journey to yesteryears.
6.Waiting For Summer (4:11) 12-string jangler with a hooky melody and a classic subject.
7.Steel Blue Skies (3:45) a nice cover of the obscure '80s New Zealand band Wasp Factory.
8.Fool Me (1:53) Mines country-pop territory with some sad slide guitar.
9.It's Not Right (2:45) Hypnotic track flows with an intimate, melancholic growth.
10.Falling Down (3:03) Honey-soaked melody strewn all throughout, chorus and verse.
