Smothered In Hugs – The Healing Power of Injury (Review)

Listened to Smothered In Hugs album “The Healing Power of Injury”.
The album will be officially drop on Feb 10, 2009.

They are a band from Charlottetown, PEI.
And members are:

  • Ryan Crane
  • Aaron Crane
  • Todd MacLean
  • Josh Byrne
  • Andrew Murray

I make this short and will revise later this because its late right now.
Overall this is a great album.
Has that Eastcoast poppy rock sound that is big with bands like Two Hours Traffic and The Danks.
I really enjoy the catchy indie pop and rock that is on this 13 track album.

Best tracks:

  • Blank Test
  • Visa Problems
  • Even Brothers
  • At The Coat Check
  • Cut Loose
  • The River

Go and grab this album

Hoping they will make a stop in Ottawa for a show.

    It’s actually a re-release…I got it from them last summer, and then they got signed to THT’s label. I don’t hear the similarity between them and THT or The Danks…more The Replacements.

    Collagen Rock Records is not THT’s label. It is a collective formed by Smothered In Hugs, Two Hours Traffic, Mardeen, and the Danks. All good friends, all talented bands, all coming from the same emerging scene and ready to take the world by storm.
