Album Review

Ae – “Love Your Smile ” – [Fresh Air]

Thurston Hunger   5/29/2006   A Library, CD

Prank pop with the flared bell-bottoms…
exotica samples, and avant-guitarist Noel
Akchote en tote. Japanglish/French vocals
from Emiko Ota…you can almost hear her
crazy hairdo’s on numbers. More damaged
than art, but ludicrously catchy…Andrew
Sharpley rounds out this vowel movement,
he’s from Stock, Hausen and Walkman. His
crazy pilferings are what fuel the cute
craziness here I suspect. Likely done on
a lark, but done right. Not cloying or
calculated, just simple impishiness. Maybe
recollections of AM radio? -Thurston Hunger
