Silver Tones Smile
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.
