SSSSNAKES / THE SLOW DEATH: Split: 7”

Ssssnakes: First tune is a catchy bit of straightforward punkin’ out. Second one is based on the standard slow doo-wop/”Heart and Soul” template, with quiet/loud/quiet dynamics and audio clips from Wayne’s World and other flicks. The Slow Death: I really dug the demo they sent in a while back, and what’s here only reinforces my respect for ‘em. They continue to mine punk’s more anthemic wells with tons o’ heart packed into each song to offset the gruff vocals. I love when a band sounds like they’ve put a lot of good work into what they do, and the tunes here have all the earmarks of exactly that happening.
