FRENCH EXIT / HILLARY CHILTON: Split: 7”

Jan 19, 2016

This review is totally bittersweet for me, as I believe this is French Exit’s last record after breaking up in 2015. In any case, this 7” contains two tracks from each band. French Exit’s tracks are in step with earlier releases—crunchy guitars, plenty of dual guitar, and vocal interplay. Hillary Chilton chose to go a more angular, experimental route. While the word spastic might be a bit extreme, these cats are kind of all over the place in a good way. Looks like you might be able to score this on banana yellow wax.
