SECRET SMOKER / ALARMS & CONTROLS split 7" in stock!
released on March 10th, 2015
For fans of: Hoover, Sleepytime Trio and 1.6 Band.
Two bands approach the variety of the "DC sound" here, one by having been a big part of it, the other by having been inspired by it. Alarms & Controls hail from Maryland, and feature members of such DC area legends as Circus Lupus, 1.6 Band, Monorchid and Crownhate Ruin. They bring post-punk in a creative direction on these songs, exploring funk and rock as well. Secret Smoker, from Baton Rouge, have two new songs here which follow their very well-regarded debut LP. Continuing their brand of emotional hardcore, like influences such as 400 Years, Hoover, Sleepytime Trio, they carve out melody with urgency and passion.
300 7" vinyl. 2 tracks by each band.
