REVIEW: Crow Bait: Three Tickle Guys

Leave a comment

CoverCrow Bait is a band comprised of members of Iron Chic, Sister Kisser and some other bands, as you might imagine they sound a lot like those bands. These are some of the best bands in that ‘Latterman sound that’s way better than Latterman ever was’ category so I think it’s safe to say that Crow Bait is pretty fucking good. Scratch that, they’re pretty fucking great. If you have any doubts throw on ‘Three Tickle Guys’ and listen, after these five songs if you’re not convinced that this band is something special you ain’t right in the head. The band has some great dudes in it so it’s no surprise that a lot of great labels are involved in this as well, the great part about that is you can get this from a ton of places. Make sure you do because if you don’t own this you’re fucking up bad.

REVIEW: Rumspringer/Sister Kisser split

Leave a comment

RumsisterTwo great bands that we not only haven’t heard from in a while but still haven’t heard anywhere near enough of. Sister Kisser has a Latterman/Iron Chic type of pop punk and they knock it out of the park with what they do. Their two songs on here are, as I assumed, fucking awesome. The first song ‘Bear Blood’ is my favorite of their two but ‘Contain and Refrain’ is no slouch either. ‘Bear Blood’ is faster and has more energy while ‘Contain and Refrain’ is more of a laid back song, seems to have a little Weezer thrown in too. Rumspringer is simply one of the best bands going today and they flex their muscles and remind everyone why that is with their two songs. I’m not sure which one of these Rumspringer songs I like better; they can both fit among the band’s best stuff. This split is one of the best I’ve heard all year, maybe the best. If you like good punk/pop punk you need this record, if you don’t have it by now you’re fucking up.
