I’m not going to lie I’ve never listened to Girl Scouts until know.  Solid Noodly Emo jams.  Besides that they got some great sing alongs, their side of the split is about double the length of Old Gray’s so a little more drawn out and a little more on the musical/epic side of emo.  I’m excited to listen to their previous album.

So it may be obvious that I only picked this out because of my love for Old Gray.  Their two tracks are a little bit different than their first two releases.  The first song sounds like it should be the opener for a full length and it takes me until midway through the track to realize that they only present two songs.  I think this record pulls away from the first, less sing along, pretty guitar parts.  That may sound bad but it really isn’t, they are carving out their own path as a band and becoming more unique sounding and I always enjoy that.  I loved this band before and I still do now.

When I first heard Old Gray’s demo I was hooked.  Within the first minute I already stoked to go back and repeat the record, again again.  When I saw that they had something new I was afraid that it wouldn’t be as good.  Well luckily for me Do I Dare Disturb the Universe brings it.  Four more awesome songs that will make it hard to pick the best one to add to a mix tape.

The record starts off with heart pouring spoken word bit that is well written from beginning to ending.  If you enjoyed the demo this record is a great progression from it the recordings are cleaner and the band is tighter.  A lot of sing a long parts, a lot of noodles, a lil bit of screaming and yelling.  Old Gray brings us sold emo that doesn’t bore.  Check it out now.

This record is a few months old and it looks like they are releasing a split and recording a full length soon.
