Third album by Brooklyn-based My Teenage Stride and follow-up to "Major Major" (BCL 103). Echoes of John Cale's solo work, mid-60s Kinks, Phil Spector, The Chills, Guided By Voices, Brian Eno, Morrissey, The Jesus And Mary Chain and 80s synth-pop can be found in this diversely addictive album. The heart of My Teenage Stride is multi-instrumentalist, singer and songwriter Jedediah Smith. The rest of the band is formed by Jenny Logan (bass), Brett Whitmoyer (drums) and Dakkan Abbe (guitar). They play regularly around New York and have been part of the Popfest New England festival in the past two years. A US College tour is planned to coincide with the release of "Ears Like Golden Bats."
