The Electric Soft Parade began as a psychedelia-infused indie band that blended the post-grunge fuzziness of Silverchair with the troubled dreaminess of post-Syd Barrett Pink Floyd, and in many respects their third full-length, No Need to be Down-Hearted, shows how little they've changed. "Woken by a Kiss" drifts, "Comfortably Numb"-style, through much of the same kind of reverb-heavy, druggy, fuzzy territory explored on their first album, Holes in the Wall. And "Shore Song/Surfacing," with its Elliott Smith-like lilt, recalls the dreaminess of American Adventure.
