STALWART SONS / SLATES: Split: 7”

Jan 23, 2012

This sounds a bit like a punk rock version of the backwoodsman man coming into town for the weekend. I’ve rarely come across a record that is so obviously Canadian without becoming a parody of itself—songs about fishing, drinking, drinking water in the woods, etc., that seem to be under the poetic influence of Gary Snyder and Tennyson. Musically, both bands have a bit of the mid-’90s Kansas City sound to them, except for the quick, punky little ditty that Slates finish the record with.
