Baltimore's Smashing Times sound as if they come from anywhere but Baltimore on fourth album Bloom. But you simply can't tell these days.
Taking their name from a Television Personalities they sound a bit like that band if they'd had Robyn Hitchcock in the band and an unhealthy interest in The Byrds which Hitchcock of course did.
There's much slightly affected out of tune singing and harmonising. This isn't authentic but that doesn't make it any less likeable.
So, hardly the Sound of Young Baltimore but a record for those who like the things I've listed.
