Sick Smile / Press

“Sick Smile, judging by the Cupcakes & Drive-Bys album, merge reggae and rock in an early Chili Peppers sort of way. It’s not contrived at all though, and despite the laid back nature of the music, it still manages to retain some Detroit grit and not get all surfy and bullshitty. Plus, they get bonus points for using the words cupcakes and drive-bys in the same sentence. That’s gotta be a first.”
