Silver Tones Smile

Velvel

A straightforward, poppy Breeders, with brighter-sounding (but not necessarily better) songs that lean toward Belly or The Muffs. There's nothing particularly remarkable about the Atlanta-based 4-piece's first release on BMG's Velvel label, just as there's nothing particularly disturbing about it. In other words, it's safe music sung by the throaty, uninspired dou of Shonali Bhowmik and Michelle DuBois. Girl group aficionados might consider it if only for its pure rock aesthetics; everyone else will simply be bored.
