MIKEY ERG / ALEX KERNS: Split: 7”

I picked up this 7” after seeing The Pine Hill Haints, Dan Webb And The Spiders, and Mikey Erg in a warehouse space in Allston, MA. I haven’t found many house/warehouse shows since moving to Portland, ME, so it was a welcome change. There’s something that can’t be matched by walking into a room so humid and sweaty that you can actually taste the stank. I love it. Mikey: Two strong cuts from him. Pop-fueled with a big pump of adrenaline. One original, one cover. If you like anything with the word Erg, you’ll like this. Alex: So monotonous and flat it sounds like he may have been more bored to record this than I am to listen to it.
