SMOKING POPES

“With a singer (Josh Caterer) who can make the most melancholic, fretting passage seem like a whistling, carefree, Willie Wonka-kissed day..and a band who is gleeful, but not in a churlish-youthful way, Smoking Popes are one of the most deceptively pleasant-sounding bands going.” -Artistdirect.com
