SUNDIALS: Always Whatever: LP

Subtitled, “A Collection of Songs from 2009-2012,” this record traces Sundials’ evolution from scrappy punk band with a taste for Archers Of Loaf to Weezer-y emo for people who never felt guilty for liking Alkaline Trio (the cover even references Alkaline Trio’s self-titled singles collection). Sundials are a damn good band, and I’m pleased to have this to fill in the gaps in my collection.
