Suckerpush – Reminiscin 
By Gary Schwind

Suckerpush, a Michigan quintet, has released an understated gem with their latest entitled Reminiscing.  It’s hard to peg these guys because, while their sound is familiar, it’s hard to say exactly who they sound like.  They incorporate a lot of influences into their music but successfully avoid sounding too much like any other band. 

Stylistically, I think the best comparison is with Matthew Sweet.  Reminiscing is a good blend of rock (“Reminiscing,”  “A Waitress Inside a Bar in my Heart”), power pop (“Tackling Daisies”), and acoustic ballads (“Dollar Sign Eyes,” “Days of Change”) like you would find on a Matthew Sweet album.

Frankly, there isn’t a bad song on this disc and it offers a little something for everyone.  “High School Reunion” is a song reminiscent of Weezer, complete with tongue-in-cheek lyrics.  It’s basically what any of us goes through if we attend our high school reunion.  The singer describes it as “Pointless conversation while my brain’s on vacation / If you find a way out then tell me how.”  He concludes the song by saying that everyone else has remained the same and he is the only one that has changed.  “Reminiscing” is about a henpecked husband whose reminiscences are always interrupted when his wife asks him to do some chores.  At the end of the song, he decides that he can’t take the commands to do chores anymore, so he leaves his wife for Hawaii.  The slide guitar in “Reminiscing” reminds me a lot of “Love Spreads” by Stone Roses.   

Suckerpush brings a lot of energy to this album and show a vast array of influences without displaying any of them too overtly.  It’s clear that Suckerpush wants to avoid being pigeonholed and I think they do it pretty successfully.  To put it simply, though, Reminiscing is a good rock album that just might find its way into your heavy rotation.
