Info -

I am sure that this band gets sick of hearing this but their instrumental parts sound a lot like 1994! So if 1994! is your kind of jam then you might just be stoked on Avair.  Like 1994! and our previous review this is a two dood combo, which somehow always turns out to be a more energetic kind of band. There are a ton of spots where if one was at a show of this band one would have the ability to sing along and one should even if in ones room alone.  This band shows that Black With Sap can do no wrong and you shouldn’t either, check out Avair now!

This seven inch is just over 3 minutes long but it carries the strength of a filled seven inch.  Each band brings us a song about dealing with forced religion that most people can relate to easily.  The art is rad and the vinyl is glow in the dark.

This split is nuts, two power houses bringing in two solid tracks each.  I’ve been super stoked on Innards since I heard Tracing last year and they have been on every mix tape of mine since.  Goro opens up their side by throwing you right into the record which is something that I enjoy every once in a while because everyone seems to have long intros these days.  The break down around the middle of the song is what sticks in my head though, it’s just so fucking gnar.  I am just continually blown away by this band release after release.  I feel like Innards are like a modern day Pg. 99 in that they are talented musicians pulling off super creative and intricate music.  Maybe that statement is wrong but it feels so right to me.

 

The Reptilian continue to bring the jams with two songs of their own, I some how missed their split with Jowls and forgot about the band but this release renewed my love.  I keep missing them when they play my town as well and it is embarrassing.  Besides that I love the spoken and yelling traded off vocals on their two songs.  From what I remember their two vocalist sounds more distinct from each other than on Full Health.  Math rock emo gets mixed with a little pop punk is the only way that I can describe this band and I’m going to stick to that.
