5.0 out of 5 stars Smoosh
A pair of pre-teen American sisters' dont sound like they would make interesting music (in theory), but they most certainly do. The songs range from funny to sad, but they all have a pop simplicity which holds them together. Pop? I didn't think I even liked pop. I like music that moves, kicks and shocks me. But smoosh has one thing that all the other polished and planned...

If I wanted to do so, writing a bad review of Smoosh's debut would be a little like kicking a kitten. After all, it's made up of talented pre-teens who make very enthusiastic indiepop; they aren't prodigies, but they show the sort of talent that might make them a hit someday.

The songs range from funny to sad, but they all have a pop simplicity which holds them together. Pop? I didn't think I even liked pop. I like music that moves, kicks and shocks me. But smoosh has one thing that all the other polished and planned pop groups could never have: a good honest talent for making music. What they lack in RAAAHHHHH, they more than make up for with Ahhhhh. Just beautiful.

If I wanted to do so, writing a bad review of Smoosh's debut would be a little like kicking a kitten. After all, it's made up of talented pre-teens who make very enthusiastic indiepop; they aren't prodigies, but they show the sort of talent that might make them a hit someday.
Fortunately these two girls don't warrant anything so mean in their debut, "She Like Electric." They won't be mistaken for Goldfrapp anytime soon, but they're pleasant to listen to -- charming keyboard melodies, solid drumming, all wrapped up in some genuinely little catchy songs, edged with rock'n'roll.
"She Like Electric" does have some missteps -- "It's Not Your Day To Shine" has a bit too many vocal frills, giving it a sugary feel. And don't rap about people being happy, girls. You cannot yet pull it off, rapping about soccer teams and adding on "uh-huh, uh-huh, yo, guys!" Uh huh, uh huh... nuh oh, nuh oh. Sorry, it does not work.
At first listen, listeners may shy away from 12-year-old vocalist's voice. I've heard too many little girls singing poorly, too. However, Asya has a good voice, and a good idea of how to use it; she doesn't overreach herself in most of the songs. Despite the "young" quality of her voice, she has some of the vocal quirks and tricks down. In songs like "About the Picture," Asya's voice shows unusual purity and prettiness that may well get even better as she grows up.
Musically, the girls -- who apparently wrote it all themselves -- show remarkable skill. Asya has a knack with the keyboards, producing winding video-game grooves and grinding bass-like noise. And her sister Chloe (aged ten) shows considerable skill as a drummer.
If you don't take their ages into consideration, Smoosh is a passable indiepop band with some real talent and moments of potential genius. It just needs some years to grow and mature. Good luck, girls.
