Screaming Females / Tenement: Split 7"
First up, Screaming Females give us a new track with a haunting, almost prog-y vibe with the creepy vocals and total shredder vibe you've come to expect from this utterly unique band. Then there's Tenement, who are one of my favorite current bands. Their contribution to this split is listed as one song, but it's really multifaceted, moving from a kind of Daydream Nation-era Sonic Youth-esque intro into one of the band's trademark huge choruses, then devolving into an abstract wash of feedback that goes on for some time. Essential for fans of both bands.
