Kiss of Death Records brings out a split that I’m very excited about. Two pretty new bands that I’ve been very impressed with even with that little I’ve heard from them. Teenage Softies, a while back I came across their demo, it’s great. But then I didn’t hear anything from them, I had thought they broken up until they came around on tour. They’re a great band live, if you get the chance check them out. But besides that demo they have nothing out until now. (If I’m wrong about that someone correct me because I need it.) Stolen Parts has a 7” out, it’s pretty great as well, but like the Teenage Softies they’re very lacking in the release department so with the combination of two great bands that need more stuff out and both of their styles I’d think that would make for a great split. Luckily Kiss of Death thought the same, this record fucking rules, don’t pass it up.
‘Gold Teeth’ A short one, starts out with female vocals then cuts in with some evil sounding cookie monster shit. They alternate, it’s so great. You could say it’s some of that ‘gruff pop punk’ but I’d be willing to bet you haven’t heard it like this before.
‘Left In Waiting’ This one is way more mellow, stars off reminding me of a Muffs song. It’s catchy as fuck though. Female vocals taking most of the work again here, but the low male parts aren’t gone. Best song on the record.
‘Second Coming’ This so reminds me of a fucking Jawbreaker song. The sound, the lyrics, everything. It’s like the lost tape. Second best song on the record.
’782′ This is a little more like the stuff I’m use to hearing from the band. Still great, just a little more punk than the previous song. Still catchy pop punk, it’s a damn quality song.
1. Gold Teeth
2. Left In Waiting
1. Second Coming
