FULL SUN: Thinkin About It: LP

Almost a decade in and we get the best Full Sun release yet. This full-band LP is loaded with big hooks, beautiful harmonies from Jeff Grant and Erin Tobey, and fun traces of ’60s guitar pop—from surf shakes to “A Hazy Shade of Winter”—filtered through the Marked Men-ish melodic punk that has been the backbone of Full Sun since it was Grant’s post-Pink Razors solo project. The lyrics seem to be searching for peace as they look back bitterly and worry for the future, offsetting the bright music and creating a sun shower. –Chris Terry (letspretendrecords.com)
