Reganomics are absolutely great, sounding like Face To Face, with a vocalist reminiscent of B.A. from Sloppy Seconds. Both of their songs included here are beyond solid pop punk tunes that any fan of that subgenre will go for. Carousel Kings play more contemporary poppy punk, the sort that was big about a decade ago on Warped Tour stages. An excellent split all around, but the main benefit for yours truly is that I’m now all about this Reganomics band, although I have to be careful about talking about loving Reganomics. I wouldn’t want anyone to get the wrong idea.
