You only get one song from each band, but the packaging is pretty spectacular. Glued jackets with a hot pink paper strip around it. Hot pink, I tell you! Both bands play a similar style of downer pop punk. Gloomy moodiness at 45 RPMs, but both bands use their sides of the split to checker the choruses and verses with scene-building, guitar-led instrumental parts. Plus they put their phone numbers on the back, so pick this up and let them know what you think.
