There isn't much to say about the three short songs on this split. It Burns! offer up two no frills, three-chord punk songs with shouted vocals. Both are short and simplistic, lacking in nearly every songwriting department except for the one labeled "fun." I would have called their two offerings .

It Burns! offer up two no frills, three-chord punk songs with shouted vocals. Both are short and simplistic, lacking in nearly every songwriting department except for the one labeled "fun." I would have called their two offerings "lo-fi," but then I heard what was on the flipside of the record.

The Phenoms belt out a quick and bouncy tune that sounds like New Bomb Turks if they recorded live through one mic that was hooked up to a crumbling four-track. Yeah, they've got some swagger, but the way the singer raises his tone to a higher pitch at the end of every line grows annoying.

Also, it comes on clear vinyl.

Oops, a band made the mistake of putting out something on vinyl. If it isn't an armor for sleep CD, the kids aint buying it.

the Phenoms are one of my favorite local bands. I saw them open for the Methadones and the Soviettes last March and the blew me away. Unfortunatly they have a nasty habit of playing mostly 21 show so I haven't been able to see them again. I haven't been able to find this 7" yet but it's high on my list.

Seriously, check out the Phenoms. They're riduculosuly good. http://www.myspace.com/thephenoms (i took two of the pictures they used on the songs) and http://www.thephenoms.com
