It's as much Andrew Marr's "pashernate" croon as it is his surname that has managed to raise the name of the Smiths in nearly every review you'll read about his band, Ski Lodge. May as well throw Andy Rourke and Mike Joyce into that mix while we're at it, since Marr (no relation to Johnny) wrote and played every part on all but one song on last year's Big Heart debut. Yes, there's some Manchester in the Brooklyn band's sound, but a good dose of summery East Coast jangle helps them steer clear of anglophile pastiche. Songs like "Anything to Hurt You" and "Dragging Me to Hell" belie their titles, and bounce along in that time-honored pop tradition that finds heads bobbing to songs inspired by the worst of feelings. If this is mopey, who needs happy? JEREMY PETERSEN
