Sweetest Place
Street: 10.05
Larusso = Plain White T’s + All American Rejects
You know that proud feeling all parents get watching their kids grow up to be successful functioning adults? That’s how long-term Larusso fans will be feeling once they get their hands on the newest release. While the band has always done well at their live shows, their previous recordings never seemed to capture them adequately. Sweetest Place, however, brings fourth a virtually professional quality, and the new tunes are better than ever. Smart and catchy, Sweetest Place is a healthy indulgence for the pop/punk craving you might be denying yourself. This album proves Larusso is finally ready to take their place among the other alternative power-houses in the valley.
