ABOVE THEM / THE AMISTAD: Split: 7”

Sep 23, 2009

Both bands: They give me the impression that they’re from Florida, specifically somewhere between the Tampa/Gainesville area. Above Them: Reminiscent of Gunmoll, just not quite as good (and that’s not even a knock, because, let’s face it, Gunmoll was pretty great), and a touch more political, lyrically. The Amistad: I hate that I constantly pull the “Sounds like ___, but not really” card, but I feel here again, filling in the blank with what little I know of The Gaslight Anthem, only a bit lighter.
