"While most twee bands embodied overcast English winters, the eternally sunny Lucksmiths were a cloudless Australian afternoon. The effervescent Melbourne trio introduced its bubbling rhythms and witty wordplay on early lo-fi records but refined its approach on The Green Bicycle Case. An endearing mix of danceable pop songs and down-tempo ballads, the album abdicated twee's security blanket without abandoning its wide-eyed wonder. Name-checking Rita Heyworth while slyly nudging Sgt Pepper on "Only Angels Have Wings", frontman Tali White's conversational tenor resembled a more tuneful, Victorian-tongued John Darnielle." Noah Bonaparte Pais, Magnet ("75 Lost Classics" feature)
