Wake Up! Wake Up!
Artist: Everyday Sunday
Label: Inpop Records
Length: 10 Tracks/33.51 Minutes

Everyday Sunday has some caffeinated, adrenaline-laced pop-punk-rock ‘n roll to share with the masses on their appropriately titled third album release Wake Up! Wake Up!.  Producer of the moment Ian Eskelin lends his tasty, hook-laden, ‘70s synth foundation touch (especially evident on the urgent track “Now You’re Gone” about a friend walking away, and the very cool worship of “Tell Me You’ll Be There”).  Everyday Sunday manages to sound current and fresh with a little bit of retro touches thrown in that keep the sound interesting.  The only drawback to Wake Up is a too-familiar sound in spots (little Switchfoot here, little Kutless there, lotta’ Relient K all over).  But fans of the aforementioned bands will love this tight, hooky, 34 minute rocking treat.  And the solid vocals (sometimes doubled?) of Trey Pearson add a different flavor then some of the current pop-punk bands.  Check out some nice bass action courtesy of Dan Hunter on the title cut…and the anthemic conversation with God “Take Me Out.”  

Barry Nothstine hosts Soul Frequency Radio (, a weekly freeform FM radio show showcasing progressive rock, instrumental rock, power-pop, psychedelic rock, rock classics, blues, and more—great rock for the ages!
