The Clumsy Lovers, Smart Kid

With their seventh record, Smart Kid, The Clumsy Lovers have successfully recorded a fun mix of furious bluegrass with lovable pop influences that should please fans and catch the ears of new ones. Instant highlights include the story based "Bobby Banjo," the punky "Okay Alright," and the rolling "Coming Home" — all of which feature the band in tight form. But the hidden treasures on Smart Kid are found in the bittersweet "Better Days," "Don't Worry," and the desolate but powerful "Not Long for This World." The Clumsy Lovers genre-defying ways makes Smart Kid the perfect introduction into country bluegrass music. (Nettwerk) Rating: 3 Out Of 5 Stars
