ANSWER LIES, THE/ TULSA: Split: 7”

I love bipolar splits that, on first listen, feel like there’s no way that these two bands should be put together. They work as three releases to suit your mood. Here, you can throw on The Answer Lies when you’re frustrated and need something fast and aggressive (think when hardcore was just starting to take on its own form). Or, if you’re feeling a bit more desperate, but are still able to laugh a bit at yourself (think Hickey), throw on the Tulsa side. But, if you’re feeling fine (or really mood swingy) and just want to listen to a pretty awesome slab of wax, go ahead and listen the whole way through. One of my favorite 7”s of the year yet.
