MAKE IT PLAIN / DEEP POCKETS: Split: 7”

Nov 21, 2014

This split sounds like it was plucked directly from the Empire Records back catalogue. Deep Pockets captures disillusioned attitude of ‘90s-era youth with lines like, “Staring at the floor is our favorite show” and “I seriously considered going back to get my associate’s degree.” They use the same speak-singing and minimal guitar that is reminiscent of Sebadoh. Where Deep Pockets is a rad ‘90s record store, Make It Plain is the small coffee shop you go to down the street for poetry readings and in house performances. The music is catchy; you’ll be singing “I need a fresh start” softly to yourself after just one listen. “ICU” is moodier and reminded me of The Cranberries. Recommended for the nostalgia factor.
