Smashing Times, a band that has it all - - - glistening hooks, matinée lagomorpha good looks, generous callback choruses, a scraggly sense of style, and hairdos that deduce. "Glorious Tales of Wes" is a preview of their autumn album This Sporting Life [PRNL051/KLP293] due November 3. It's a collection of similarly essential takes on pop euphoria, in that when one takes a listen one is taken aback and then must dive forward into a world of guitarmatic strange-a-pop. Smashing Times, This Sporting Life, a quick visit to jangle town that's worth many return trips.
