Teeth behind the smile.

After three albums of intelligent, understated melancholy, itís business as usual for this Cali trio. Stately, midtempo tunes whose immaculate production belies the darkness at their core. Like An Ant Floating In Milk is typical: emerging from a woozy fug into blossoming psychedelia. But itís tracks like Show Yourself which hint at the teeth behind vocalist Jim Putnamís dopey grin, cooing ďItís nice to see a knife in your backĒ. Itís always the quiet ones you have to watch.
