NAG / LIP: Split: 7”

Sep 17, 2018

I was super taken in by the Nag side of this split right off the bat: fuzzed-out vocals with a really good pacing, taking it slow but with sharp turns. Almost like a heavier, more angular Dead Meadow on the first track, bleeding into a more old school classic British punk feel on the second. Lip’s side was a little less exciting on its own, but bringing these two bands together does something to elevate both. Lip’s more gothic sound is amplified by the heavier dimensions of the Nag songs, making the songs sound less like the tracks from an old horror movie and more like a core-shaking sonic adventure of its own. I bet both bands are super loud live. –Theresa W. (Space Taker Sounds,
