Hype. While I normally feature harder music (as is my preference) sometimes a curve ball comes along that just floors me as a listener and it doesn’t matter what ‘genre’ tag fits…the only thing I can say is this one of the best albums of 2019.

These bands both seemed to put out these killer records around a similar time and I really enjoyed both albums when I heard them, which left me hoping they’d put out some more stuff to sink my teeth into. Fortunately they banded together and shared the cost of a 7 inch record to do just that. Continue reading GOODBYE ENEMY AIRSHIP/WARPIGS – Split 7″
