Massive, soaring and, predictably, "Brooklyn"
2010 | Label: Frenchkiss Records / The Orchard

The Brooklyn-by-way-of-Connecticut quartet known as Suckers do a lot of whistling. But not the Andrew Bird, sitting-in-a-tiny-room-all-alone style. This is massive, soaring stuff. On the gallant "Roman Candles," from their debut full-length Wild Smile, whistling is enough to build an entire chorus. It's a typically unlikely move for a band that rose up out of the teenage soul-crushing suburbs of New Haven, Connecticut, and stumbled into a scene populated by Brooklyn's indie superstars, carousing, if… read more »

I'm a sucker for the Suckers!

Before Your Birthday Ends is fantastic! A Mind I Knew, Roman Candles and Black Sheep are all awesome as well. Loose Change is cool too.

A must see live!

I just saw these guys open for Menomena and they are fantastic. It looks like the split the drum kit up amongst the band and gave the drummer some keyboards. These multi-taskers rock!

I love this

Been awhile since I've heard an album that can easily play through without having to skip tracks. Up there w/ Odd Blood and Contra in my opinion.

Nicely done

Reminds me of why I love Modest Mouse and Wold Parade. Spazzy lyrics barked out in stacatto cadence followed by unbelievably catchy hooks. Fun stuff, indeed.

One of 2010's Best

PoetGirll

I pre-ordered this directly from the band, just in case Emusic didn't have it, and I was not disappointed. An absolutely fantastic album! It's hard to say exactly what makes Suckers so great. There's a little bit of everything in Wild Smile--it's soulful, poppy, jangly, reverby--and the songwriting is intelligent, witty and moving. If that sounds like a hodgepodge, it's not. Somehow it's more than the sum of its individual parts, though the parts are great, too. Suckers are hard to pin down because they don't really sound like anyone but themselves. I see why they're touring with Local Natives--they definitely have something in common--great hooks, great harmonies, great writing--while not sounding at all alike. And they're both just so damn much fun! Definitely a candidate for the 2010 Top Albums of the Year!
