KIDS / FLORENCE AND LIBBY / PAXTON / WE WERE SKELETONS: Split 12”

This four-way split of Pennsylvania bands is a beautiful looking record. Three color silk screened cover and fancy zine-like booklet titled, “A Young Scout’s Field Guide to Penn’s Woods Hardcore,” makes me think you’d also find it on Etsy. The eclectic spread of bands on this piece of vinyl makes for a groovy time. Everything from Modest Mouse garage rock to hardcore to math rock to goodtime Midwest punk. Definitely worth a spin. At least side two is.
