The Maureens - Everyone Smiles


Is everyone smiling out in the Blogsphere? We don't know the answer to that question, but all jangle pop fans should be smiling when they hear Everyone Smiles by Dutch band The Maureens. This is the sort of hooky, melodic, mid-tempo powerpop that the Posies and Teenage Fanclub adroitly used to capture our hearts decades ago and, to no one's surprise, we find that there is plenty of room in our hearts for the version performed by The Maureens. It also is no surprise that the rights to release Everyone Smiles were snapped up by Madrid's Meritorio Records. The label is fast becoming known for impeccable taste in the guitar top space and this band fits perfectly in their roster along with Scots/Spanish band Dropkick. And while the melodies and jangle may attract your ears, we think it is likely that you will find the harmonies to be a star in the show.

This one is pure musical pleasure.
