The one big downfall of Sonny Sixkiller is the fact that they sound note for note like Sub Pop pleasant rockers Velocity Girl. But to their advantage, they sound like Velocity Girl before the release of Gilded Stars and Zealous Hearts. With that inspiration, This Is Your Heaven perfectly captures a pure sense of joyous, female-fronted pop. And although Sonny Sixkiller brainchild Kara Lafty wears her heart on her sleeve on all 12 numbers, there isn't a single moment of self-pitying melancholy. Rather, just full-on presence of crisp catchiness that could brighten up anyone's day.
