SHOT BAKER / SERF COMBAT: Chicago vs. London: 7”

Shot Baker: One original, one cover. Their original is great. If you’re not a fan of Shot Baker already, this one isn’t going to convert you, though. They cover “England Belongs to Me” which sounds really cool with Tony’s voice and I’m still not convinced that the song is as big a deal as some of my friends think it is, but I am now one step closer to admitting that it can be good. Serf Combat: I’m fairly impressed with their original on this record. Folksy indie punk: hints of Lemuria and the Measure [SA], except with a male singing. Really, really good, but the vocals might not be for everyone.
