Been listening to: Smoking Popes edition

For your listening pleasure: A slab of lovesick power pop from the underappreciated Smoking Popes, off of their most polished effort, Destination Failure. It’s got pretty much everything you need for pre-Valentines wallowing: a strong melody, well-observed lyrics, a dose of self-deprecation and even a decent punchline. Granted, singer Josh Caterer can get a little Morrisey-via-Kermit the Frog for some people’s tastes, but he’s consistently clever and emotionally direct enough that it hardly matters.
