INFLATABLE BEST FRIEND / BONGONYA: Split: 7” EP

Inflatable Best Friend: Arty, dissonant noise punk. They definitely kick up some dust, but they have the sense to keep things structured so that things don’t get shambolic and jam rock-like. Bongonya: A mix of the same kind of arty, noisy sensibilities as their pals on the other side of the record, but they go the instrumental route, adding a bit more structure and elements of jam rock and maybe a tinge of surf. Somehow that sounds worse than the results actually are.
