Stream Gone for Good by Smiles
If I had one thing I could bestow upon you all it would be the gift of the SLR30 Single Series…especially after this week’s installment news of Wildhoney…but that’s not just it…now we’ve got Smiles. This track is that perfect Friday tune, heavy-handed pop riffs blasting behind you as you cruise towards that pop sunset; the warm melody recalls the band’s home state of California, as well as a nod to Teenage Fanclub. The last 30 seconds are interesting, fusing a bit of classic rock vibes with these vocal tones that aren’t too far off from Elliott Smith’s croon. 30 years of great music, and lets hope it carries on for 30 more with songs like this one.
