    Fulvimar has, all at once, figured out what works and built up the self-assurance to do just that.

    No matter the mood and subtle variation in sound, Fulvimar is in full control at all times, and while some may miss the garage punk style of the first album, Shine Your Light is an impressive change-up that will thrill those who stick around.

    The only real misstep is the too-funky-for-its-own-good “Snow Your Mind”; otherwise Fulvimar has created another record that will appeal to a wide range of music fans as the indie rockers will give it a thumbs up as will the stoners, psych-mongers and electronic freaks, too.

    It's that intoxicating blend of late night, tripped-out electronics and melodic psych that is featured prominently on Shine Your Light, and it's a notable improvement.

    Whether the dreamy passages or the pop hooks reach deeper, you may find yourself moved to leave the Light on.

    Shine Your Light never gets oppressive, though during its final third, it does suggest what living in a record store might be like after the novelty wears out--kinda lonely, a little bit stuffy, and leaving you subject to others trying to tiptoe around.

    It’d be a little too easy (and inaccurate) to say that Shine Your Light is a bad album; there’s certainly a lot of potential on display here. What it is, though, is frustrating.
