FlareUp is from Indonesia and Girl is from Minneapolis. Both offer four songs each of intense hardcore which fans of powerviolence and similar hardcore will enjoy. The tracks by both bands on this tape are killer, but the duplication of this tape sounds so horrible and lo-fi that I am convinced something went wrong with the duplication process, or something has gone horribly wrong with my tape deck. It’s a great split release, regardless, and worth checking out.
