I had lots of reasons to suspect I wouldn't like them, but in fact, I really like the two songs on The Amber Smith's website, and am tempted to say I like the band in toto. They were described as very Teenage Fanclub-y, and that's pretty accurate. The first song ("Yeah Yeah Yeah"--I know, I know) is, in fact, a bit too Teenage Fanclub to be fully appreciated, but the second song, "You Don't Have to Stay (Go)" is really nice. Give it a listen. Great backup vocals in the chorus, weirdly wonderful badly double-tracked guitar solo, etc.
