Exit Hippies / Lotus Fucker: Split 12"
Brand new material from both bands. Exit Hippies continue their total deconstruction of music, but unlike a lot of "noise not music" bands, they actually have a sense of catchiness and dynamics in their music. It's wild and out there for sure, but you'll actually listen to it as well... it's easy to see why people go nuts for this band. As for Lotus Fucker, while their previous material has had a very Gauze-esque feel, this feels a little more in line with the Kyushu noise sound... a little looser, a little noisier, and the vocals higher-pitched and nastier. Throw in some brilliant cover artwork and you have quite the noise-punk pairing.
