Light of Day EP

The Lazystars must get laid a lot. In case chick-ensnaring power ballad “Still Remember,” off first EP All of the Difference, wasn’t enough, the local quartet has new bait: “She Knows Everything,” the middle cut on the three-song Light of Day. “I can’t feel without your touch/I can’t have a thought without thinking way too much,” Dave Hawkins croons amid silky-smooth instrumentation. Now let’s see him sing it with a straight face onstage.
Thing is, though, it’s one catchy tune. So is opener “Pictures and Photographs,” which sneaks up on you in a psychedelic-pop sorta way. And damn if that closing title track doesn’t rock out with its guitar out. Hmm, maybe dudes can hang with The Lazystars, too.
