Cursive / Eastern Youth
Album: Eight Teeth To Eat You
Label: Better Looking Records
Web: Official Label Site
Cursive is a band that I enjoy greatly. On this
split they have teamed up with Japanese punk favorites Eastern Youth. Each band
contributes four songs each. All the Curisve songs are great, and this is probably their
best release to date. The intensity of Tim Kasher's voice on "Excerpts From Various
Notes..." will blow your mind.
Then we have Eastern Youth. I heard that these guys are very popular overseas, and with
good reason too. Their vocals are very good, and I'm sure their lyrics are quite nice as
well...but the problem is that it's all in Japanese, and with me being a clumsy American,
I'm obviously going to have trouble understanding the songs. But, who cares. These guys
rock too. This is a very intersting album that shows off two very good underground bands
from two completely different atmospheres. Pick this one up.
