Editorial Reviews

Suckers Formed In Brooklyn, Ny In 2008 Where Members Quinn Walker, Austin Fisher, Pan And Brian Aiken Began Mixing Tribal Indie Rock With Flourishes Of Chamber Pop And David Bowie Inspired Eclecticism. Wild Smile Is A Cracked Prism Of Indie Pop, A Buzz-Stirring Debut That Causes Spontaneous Sing-Alongs And A Nagging Need To Seize The Day. Produced By Chris Zane (Passion Pit, Mumford & Sons) It's The Work Of The Three Singers/ Multi-Instrumentalists That Created The Band. Suckers Often Sample Themselves, Whether That Means The Bubbling Bed Of Loops At The Start Of 'Black Sheep' Or The Whistle-Led Soda Shop Strut Of 'Roman Candles. They're Not The Looped Drum Breaks You Hear In Hip-Hop, Or The Cheesy Stuff You'd Hear In '90s Music. It's Usually More Textural, And Since The Samples Are Taken From Things Suckers Play Ourselves, It's Easy To Avoid Lawsuits. It's Also Easy To See Why Suckers Are Considered Yet Another Link In A Chain Of Brooklyn Bands That Have Nothing In Common But A Desire To Do Things Differently. After The Release Of Late Last Year's Self Titled Ep, Suckers Have Shared Stages With Yeasayer, Mgmt And Chairlift. A World Tour Is Commencing This June Following The Release Of The New Album.

Aside from the self-titled EP that preceded their full-length debut, Suckers are quite new to the scene. However, it is rare for a band to strike gold with its debut alone; some bands hit their peak two or three albums into their career. Oddly enough, Suckers is one of those rare exceptions. For some reason, listening to "Wild Smile" gives listeners the sense that they've heard Suckers their whole life--that they're revisiting a classic instead of spinning it for the first time. This could be attributed to the various influences that Suckers gracefully embed in the record, ranging from vintage Talking Heads to God knows what else--there's just this overwhelming feeling of familiarity that runs through it, and it's a welcome feeling at that.

The biggest appeal of "Wild Smile" is that it sounds quirky and exotic, but it also strikes two emotional chords simultaneously--joy and sadness. From the cries of the heart that drag "Save Your Love For Me" from a quiet indie lament to a powerful call to arms, "Wild Smile" raises your adrenaline level (particularly when "Black Sheep" goes synth crazy in its latter half) while embodying a profound sense of sadness that lurks beneath the surface. In some instances, the lyrics languish in the dumps while the instrumentation reaches great heights; in others, the instrumentation slows to a lethargic crawl as the lyrics offer the listener some comfort. "It Gets Your Body Moving" is a prime example of this approach, but every track alternates between these moods in their own brilliant way.

Regardless of where the album stands as critics make their picks of the year, I can't recommend "Wild Smile" highly enough. It's an exceptional debut, but above all else, it's an exceptional record. With any luck, it won't drift into obscurity like so many underrated albums have done in the past.

Buy this cd/vinyl/mp3/whatever just buy it! a great album from beginning to end with great grooves propelled by pounding yet orchestral drums, soaring guitars, and plenty of other instruments building a soundscape for some great vocals.
There's a nice flow to the album and while there are no weak songs, 2 eyes 2 C and A Mind I Knew certainly stick out as true gems.

Your standard indie-album this is not. From start to finish this record delivers. Wish more people knew about them. I'm sure its only a matter of time.

The CD is fun, easy, eclectic and free flowing. If you want to get up and wiggle and whistle...it will make you do that, too.

This album wouldn't be too bad except for one problem. The lead singer's voice is completely annoying and way way too falsetto for this type of music. I'm sorry, but his voice just doesn't fit with this. I've given it a couple of tries, but blahh!!!!!! It's too bad because the instrumentals on this LP are pretty decent.
