The Lucksmiths: First Frost

The Lucksmiths
First Frost
Matinee Recordings [2008]

Fire Drills Review:
Australia's Lucksmiths probably have not received enough credit on this continent for being good. First Frost could change many newbies opinions about the band because it 14 tracks of solid indie pop which is absolutely pleasing to listen to. This record marks their ninth studio long player and it showcases their veteran status as seasoned musicians, competent songwriters and most importantly knowing the art of creating hook friendly gems that don't leave your head!

Key Track: "California In Popular Song"

Band With Similar Fire: The Go-Betweens
