Uh-huh, uh-huh. Yo, yo.
I saw the sibling duo Smoosh last night, and they were fabulous. Asya (13) and Chloe (11) possess a gift that honestly defies their years. I was trying to remember what I was doing when I was in middle school. Probably spending countless hours in front of a mirror trying to make my bangs defy gravity with the help of a can of hairspray. Smoosh's songs are quirky and fun, but delivered with honesty and poise. There were moments when Asya's keyboard playing and straight forward singing had me recalling Ben Folds. I don't know; maybe it's just me. Smoosh also played new songs from their upcoming album, and the ladies are definitely growing in their sound. You'll definitely be impressed, and probably a little depressed about how you spent your middle school years.

Until the new LP comes out, you can listen to Smoosh's 2004 live set at KEXP. You can also buy their album She Like Electric at Insound.
