You Can’t Hide The Sun (Paper + Plastick Records)
release date: 10/16/2012
by Scott Hefflon

11 songs of punkpop goodness, courtesy of Vinnie Fiorello of Less Than Jake’s Paper + Plastick Records. Yes, there are numerous horns and upstroked guitars scattered about, so anyone averse to such things, beware. Comparisons to mid-’90s pop punk, both culture-changing and the bandwagon-hoppers, is inevitable, but if you’ve ever watched a mediocre opener work a crowd into a frenzy as you stood, wondering how they could jump around with all the cliches weighing them down, you learn to not overthink fun, energetic punkpop.
