"If you ask me, split releases are a goddamned treasure. They’re a formidable commodity. They are something that should surely get Max far in a place like Bartertown. What I’m getting at here is that there’s not only the obvious benefit of acquiring new music by a band that you are already well aware and fond of…but it’s also possible for such a record to open one’s eyes to something not yet observed. And, not only are you getting the full package, with two doses of cover artwork, insert, and the sheer, unbridled bliss of ceremoniously placing the needle in the groove to incite the inevitable rage riot…you are experiencing the record the way it was meant to be. When it comes to this kind of thing, my favorites are the ones that offer up two (or more) totally different worlds…the kind of shit where flipping to the other side is like starting another harrowing chapter in another book altogether. What we have here is a prime example of that kind of situation. Yes, ladies and germs, it is on this 7” release that two decidedly different Indiana-based outfits unite for one brief yet monstrously chaotic assault on the senses.

Here, the seemingly always on-point Late August follow up their 2011 Not for Human Consumption full-length with a supercharged double-shot of like-minded, Napalm Death-meets-Eyehategod sludge/grind lunacy. The one-two punch of “Wake Up/Humanity’s Miserable End” should most definitely inspire foil hats everywhere to jump into the fucking shelter. D’s raw throated screams once again devastate the calm, accompanied by Scott’s slow doom-inspired riff, alternating with break-neck grind passages. The end just made me wish this side was at least twice as long!! Don’t bother putting on your helmet for this, because it’ll be over before you’re strapped in…so just enjoy the beating and savor it until these guys pay us all another skull-pummeling visit!

Meanwhile, the mischievously quirky trio known as Mr. Clit and the Pink Cigarettes serve up two squirmy helpings of their trademark noise-punk frenzy. More akin to the worlds of earlier “alternative” and punk bands of the 80’s and 90’s, the band are unashamed and relentless in the injection of their own screaming, rabid brand of what the norm calls “crazy” into those influences. The double decker rampage of “Cum Friends/Hyena Song” possesses a noticeably “old school” feel, with DIY punk tentacles wrapped tight. Comprised of a guy (Mr. Clit) and two girls (yep, you guessed it…the Pink Cigarettes), the band is three more people in the world that clearly left their elders scratching their heads in mass confusion. While likely not for everyone in more extreme music circles, this three piece will surely turn heads, one way or another!" - Forbidden Magazine
