The Thrills, 'Teenager' (Virgin)

6
Teenager
Critical Mass
Label: Virgin

by Mikael Wood

On their third studio disc, these floppy-haired Dublin boys continue to savor memories of a California adolescence they never experienced. Teenager overflows with strummy Laurel Canyon guitars and gooey Beach Boys harmonies given a sweet sheen by Beck's producer pal Tony Hoffer. The novelty of their sunny approach has worn off --the Magic Numbers do this kind of thing more exuberantly -- but the Thrills have matured into pretty crafty tunesmiths: "This Year" features one of their most indelible hooks yet.
