I’ve spent the last three plus months listening to this album.  I know… I haven’t been saying a lot or posting a lot on this blog but Clay Davis would say “Shheeeeeeeeet” after listening to this record.  I’m pretty confident when I say that this split is the best release of the year.  I know, It’s mid March but fuck it… This split brings together four rad bands.  Not four bands, but four bands that know how to write fucking badass songs.  Now I could do one of two things.  1.  Write a in depth description categorizing each single thousand reason describing why you should listen to this record OR. 2. simplying stating that this will be the best record of the year and you don’t need to read anything about it and just listen to it.  I’ll go with the later.  Listen to this record, go buy it and then get emo….


I am moving to Cleveland, Ohio In 13 days so if you want to kick out your singer and have me take over check out my resume.

Vowel is a complex band.  You won’t be able to point a figure on their major influences at any point in any song.  Each song includes a congruent violin track with some high pitch vocals.  As you know me you will know that I love duel vocals and Vowels has a co-lead singer with a deeper more punk voice adding to the greatness of Vowel.   In the end you have a band in which you cannot help but love and love them I do!
