I am a huge Direct Hit fan, they always give us hard hitting passionate punk rock songs, which is awesome. But what never ceases to amaze me, is their range. They are two tracks on this split, that cannot be more different from one another, yet still sound like the same band. Wasting Away is super catchy, from the first chords will hook you and the chorus will have you tapping your foot. I Ain’t Dreaming of a White Christmas is fast angry hardcore compressed into a minute and a half.
The Pricedifkes were totally new to me. They are a snotty punk rock rock band from Belgium. Both of these tracks, Boredom Addict and Getwood City have the same vibe – dissatisfied snottyness with slightest bit of melody. You know, the just right combination to make you run out and look for everything they have ever recorded.
I have said it before, but I’ll say it again, the Splits from Say-10 Records are always worth checking out.
