Seattle indie pop duo Smoosh evinces a childlike charm that's appropriate given that the vocalist/keyboardist is 12 and the drummer is 10. But the youthful glow these two effortlessly bask in is exactly the sort of vibe that dozens of too-cool-for-school indie bands in the Northwest have attempted for years. Ironically, She Like Electric is much more accomplished and enjoyable than, say, anything ever released by Calvin Johnson. Staking a middle ground between impish hipness and catchy pop hooks, the duo's straightforward and simple approach is deadly effective, and will be that much more so once singer Asya figures out that she doesn't have to sing every song in the same exact singsongy way.
