Smog City is a trippy effort that includes stark angular guitars, more contemplative arrangements, and charismatic vocals that sit at the top of the track. With so many things occurring over the course of 3:20, one may worry about cohesive. Raised On TV is able to expertly link these different elements together into a modern-day epic; the different section here showcase the strengths of the act without introducing any weaknesses. Our favorite section of Smog City has to be the instrumental interlude immediately preceding the 2:30 mark. Smart production ensures that every juke and jive makes sense in context.
We covered Raised On TV’s Caroline in March.
