TWO HOUSES / BREAKMOUTH ANNIE: Split: 7” EP

Mar 20, 2018

Two Houses are slack—Pavement-slack—in their hooks. The-first-time-I-read-an-article-about-Dinosaur Jr-and-realized-J-and-Murph-care-as-much-about-soap-operas-as-shredding-slack in their leads. “Teenage Wasteland” even comes complete with an “ooh-oo” that wouldn’t sound out of place next to that one popular Blur song. Smash those puzzle pieces together (don’t care if they don’t fit…SMASH THEM TOGETHER!), top them with lyrics about pills, booze, losing your job and title a song “Tiltwheel in a Cubicle,” and yeah, totally down to hang out with your side of the record. Breakmouth Annie’s side of the record is adult-style throaty punk tunes. Imagine Restorations, but from early ‘90s Chicago. –Matt Seward (Do What?, dowhatrecords.bandcamp)
