Smoosh – the indie-pop sister act formed a decade(!) ago by singer/keyboardist Asy and singer/drummer Chloe, then pre-teens – moved from Seattle curiosity to Seattle mainstay due to their infectious songs and stellar live prowess. And then they moved…to Stockholm. Not long after the release of their last album, 2006’s Free to Stay, Smoosh opened their ranks to their younger bass-playing sister Maia; in Sweden, the trio concocted its forthcoming opus The World’s Not Bad. We’ve heard one track so far, “We Are Our Own Lies,” and it’s sophisticated, moody, and sweeping, like they’ve given their bouncy piano-pop the Sigur Rós treatment. With Matt Pond PA, Wintersleep.
