The Smile :: Wall of Eyes

Wall of Eyes is a canvas haunted by doubles, forking paths; alternate lives lived at a distance, in pieces, through keyholes. It’s also an effort that feels bracingly contemporary with a younger generation of rockers feeding on rhythmic eclecticism, from Tonstartssbandht to Water From Your Eyes. That it should mark another confident step into a post-Radiohead future is appropriate, if bittersweet.
