OL' DORIS- "A Murder of Four" TAPE
OLEHOLE / TIGON- Split 7" EP
OLD GROWTH / SCIENCE OF YABRA- Split 7"
Old Growth and Science of Yabra may be two very different bands, but together they make for quite a solid little split tour 7". Old Growth's vocalist oddly reminds me of a young Kevin Devine, with the band playing two straight-ahead, punk-inflected rock tunes that are a little more down-home than Miracle of 86. There's an honest, lovesick quality to the singer's voice and yet the music stays driving in "Taste the Rain," while "Brother Boy" sounds like a lost Jawbreaker instrumental. On the other side, Science of Yabra offer one mere tune, but "Reunion Machine" is a raucous one, with bouncing, slammed post-hardcore riffs á la Drive Like Jehu.
