LA-native Kevin Greenspon, founder of Bridgetown Records, having put out a ton of cassettes and CD/CDrs, teamed up with Dylan Baldi of Cloud Nothings for a super sweet 10-song split CD. It runs through pretty quick, at a little over 18 minutes, but the short and sweet pop tunes can cure any fever. Kevin starts off the CD with “Post Life,” an up-tempo 90s fuzz-jam touting lyrics about being “over” your own life. His lyrics paint a deep picture, “Give me a reason to hold on to and do the things I’ve always wanted to do without worrying about how it’ll all end up.” His side is definitely on the darker side of life, but it’s a major reason to why the songs are so well-written and turned out perfect. Once you hit the Cloud Nothings side, things start looking up. I’ve talked with Dylan about how he’s starting to record with a clean pop sound and pretty much dropping the lo-fi aesthetic, but he still heavily acknowledges that sound possibly for the last time on this CD. Four out of the five songs are quick fun pop tracks, much like “Can’t Stay Awake” and “Turning On” on the debut album, Turning On. The song above, “I Apologize,” is a hazy pop ballad reminiscent of early Jimmy Eat World, with a lyrically nod to the Golden Girls. With two sides equally different and pleasing to the ears, you’d be doing yourself wrong not picking up this CD. Grab it from Bridgetown for only $8 including shipping (Hint: that’s a good fucking deal)! Also, if you’re already ordering that, check out the Summer Sampler and order some of those CDs too, I highly recommend Weed Diamond, Vehicle Blues, and Ancient Crux.
