This is upbeat, poppy, crunchy, intoxicating, dazzling, and inviting! It’s a perfectly structured blend of euphoric powerpop intricacies and harder edged bursts of frolicsome rock’n’roll rawness. It’s jubilant, bouncy, and downright addictive like a lemonade slush coolin’ the throat on an uneventful hot’n’humid summer afternoon. My brew-sloshed old ears distinctly hear a sweet swirling whirlwind of influences that range from The Beatles and Weezer to Badfinger, Cheap Trick, Soul Asylum, Paul Westerberg, and Portastatic. This is exactly the kind of disc I’d play in the calm shade of a warm spring evening while lounging in a hammock, sipping a cold brew, and dreamily gazing at the fluffy lumbering clouds lazily floating high overhead. Aaahhh, I’m feelin’ all bubbly inside… –Roger Moser, Jr.
