This split features two up and coming bands from Philadelphia.
Let's start with Marietta: according to their Facebook page, their interests include cats and beer. I hope that doesn't mean they like getting cats drunk (heh heh). You may remember these guys from a review we did of their demo back in February, wherein we mentioned how much potential the band had. They certainly delivered on that promise of potential with this release.
Onto Modern Baseball: according to their Facebook page, these two have interests that include Christmas lights and cookies. Who doesn't love that?
Combine the two together and you've got yourself a pretty neat split! I'm not sure if they plan on releasing this on vinyl or not, but I would hope so because I suspect a lot of people would want it after listening to it. Although the bands are similar to each other, they manage to maintain their own style while complementing each other quite nicely.
