Kind of Like: Empire! Empire!, Joie de Vivre, Hunter Gatherer | Nai Harvest
Genres: Emo, Indie, Post-rock, Screamo
Both of these bands have been featured on this blog recently. I have been fortunate enough to have one of the guys in Foxing, Josh, be a frequent visitor to this site, and he has sent me tunes along the way. Hunter and Gatherer was the first band of his I listened to and it was pretty rad post-rock. This split has been sitting in my inbox for about a month, and I am just now getting to listening to it. But holy shit, this is one of the better split 7"s that have come out in the past year. As with previous efforts (by both bands), just really great thematic development which is what really gets me invested into a band, but these songs are something else. Pick this one up on powder pink or black vinyl. I was about to say this weird ambient, tinkling part is really kind of overdone though, but I realized my music player just moved on to Frances the Mute by Mars Volta without me noticing. Whoops.
