BIG NOTHING: Chris: LP

This is the first full-length record from this Philly-based band and it’s great! It feels like a good, more fully realized continuation of their first four-song EP. The band members switch off on vocals throughout the record, adding an element of surprise around each corner. Some songs have an anthem-y Lemonheads quality, while others remind me of an edgier mid-’90s Gin Blossoms. This record holds energy throughout and every song pulls its weight. I’ve heard their name for a while, but never got around to listening to them and I’m so happy that I have now! I’m a fan! –Emily T. (Salinas)
