BLACK SPARROW PRESS / PLURALS: Split: 7”

San Pedro’s own BSP teams up with Lansing, Michigan’s Plurals on this four-song platter. BSP does the reflective/introspective thing with roaring vocals and drumming that somehow reminds me of Joy Division’s Stephen Morris. Plurals takes the louder, more energetic road with a drummer who is clearly beating the shit out of his drum kit with some hectic, buzzsaw guitars sprinkled on top—a winning formula in my book. Find this baby if you can. I think it is a pretty limited release.
