Album Review

On their seventh record (second to garner a non-local release), Vancouver's Clumsy Lovers have hit the sweet spot with their signature blend of irreverent folk-rock and progressive country. Smart Kid is what Barenaked Ladies might have sounded like had they continued in the vein of Gordon instead of pandering to MTV. It's goofy, earnest, meticulously crafted, and expertly played, with echoes of early Camper Van Beethoven and Spirit of the West.
