LAUNCHER / FREAKEES: Split: 7”

No Front Teeth in the U.K. released this wonderful split of two of the best current Los Angeles bands, Launcher and Freakees. Each group has a snotty singer and clever lyrics, with heavy distortion on the guitars and vocals. It whizzes by with just two songs from each artist, clocking in at a total length of just over six minutes. I’d love to hear more new tracks from these two California gems, but it doesn’t seem as though that wish is being granted at the moment. Seek this record out, as it’s already allegedly close to selling out. It’s an instant classic, and I say that with no hyperbole whatsoever. –Art Ettinger (No Front Teeth)
