LEOPARD PRINT / GLUT: Too Big to Fail: CS

Two tough bands with slightly different approaches on this split tape. Leopard Print are wilder and thrashier and more ‘80s; kind of Motörhead style. I feel like they’ve probably done acid. Glut is guttural and tighter and a little more conventional, almost youth crew style. I’m not here for that. I haven’t heard funny samples between songs on an album in forever (highlights on the Glut side include Bill Hicks and, I think, Abner Jay). It’s 1999 again. –Matt Werts (Levee Dog, facebook.com/levee-dog-records)
