Two bands from Chicago that know what they’re doing. These songs were recorded in the basement of Boxsledder’s drummer. Brickfight: I’ve seen these guys live several times and they’re great. The songs on here are upbeat, with lots of group vocals. There is a very strong guitar presence. The lyrics are about shit not working out how you wanted it to and moving on. I can relate. Boxsledder: Like Brickfight, this band consists of four dudes. They are a bit faster and the guitars move around more. Their lyrics are about life sucking, for the most part. The singer holds notes very well and the drums bounce around a lot. Really great cover art by Jason Neumann. Each side is a drawing of each band, hanging out and partying. A definite purchase.
