SUBJUNCTIVES, THE: Sunshine and Rainbows: LP

This is Ean from the legendary pop band Sicko’s current band and they’re incredible. A follow up to their EP, this full-length mixes the catchiness of Sicko with 1977-esque riffs and Midwest present-day charm à la The Arrivals. Mixed by Matt Allison and mastered by Mass Giorgini, the production couldn’t be better. Ean’s voice of gold is recognizable, and the lyrics are beyond charming, focusing on finding beauty in the mundane. One of 2019’s most crucial releases, Sunshine and Rainbows is aptly titled as it will brighten your day, month, year, and beyond. Yes, you need it. –Art Ettinger (Top Drawer, tdrecs.com)
