On Kissing Ghosts, Toronto's Oval-Teen offers up ten outtakes from the forthcoming 50-track Yorkville, IL double-disc on Bi-Fi Records. While the opening track "Bending Spoons (Mono)" clocks in at three minutes, most of the tracks are two minutes or less on this ten-song display of the band's solid indie pop sensibilities. After the mesmerizing opening track, the band shines with the catchy and unadulterated pop of "People Are Talking" and "Surfa Girl." The title track's restrained delicacy may very well be the album's highlight, showing that singer/songwriter Bradley Davis can shine on soft ballads as well as upbeat indie pop anthems. The album showcases different sides of the band, offering the flipside to its usually up-tempo pop songs. The feisty organ on "Up or Down," the manic synthesizers that lead into "Susan," and the casual folk of "Shoebox" keeps the album interesting, if not consistent. The album's lack of cohesiveness is due to the fact that the songs were culled from across the timeline of the band's seven-year history. Toronto's My Mean Magpie Records released Kissing Ghosts in 2003.
