REVIEW: Spraynard/Sundials split

Leave a comment

This is a split I was really excited for; it’s two bands that I like a whole lot on one record. I had this hyped pretty high in my own mind, even with the high hype I had worked up both bands delivered and lived up to my own expectations. I honestly can’t say which side is better because both of these are equally great. And when I say great I don’t mean ‘oh these are two pretty good songs’, no each band delivers two top notch songs that make this a must own record. Spraynard brings two fucking great songs, again I’m not sure which one I like better, they did a great job of choosing what to put on here. If you’re a Spraynard fan, this is a must have. Sundials is a band I’ve been big on since the first time I saw them open on some random show, again they have two great songs that any Sundials fan has to have. If you like either band you have to own this record, if you like one of these bands, you have to own this record. If you don’t know one or both bands, this record offers a great starting point for either. You really can’t go wrong with this slab of vinyl.

1. No Taxis In Malvern
2. Subsidizing Edward Norton

3. Snowballs At Cops
4. Fire Escape

Top 25 Albums of 2011

Albums this year was pretty tough, there are some good ones that were left off. Speaking of ones left off there are some releases that were not included. Some of the reasons were if they were compilations, covers and live material. While there has been some great stuff this year put out that matches this I don’t think it’d be fair. There are even one or two things I left off of here because it was mostly compilation, or previously released material. So if you think I missed something, think about that first…then violently disagree with me.



  1. Motorhead: The World Is Yours
  2. House Boat: The Thorns of Life
  3. Alestorm: Back Through Time
  4. Deep Sleep: Turn Me Off
  5. Sundials: Never Settle
