- Split by Shearing Pinx / Twin Crystals
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 04 November 2010
Described as two of Vancouver's hardest working bands, but still relatively unknown outside of their immediate circles, Shearing Pinx and Twin Crystals have got their shit together to release this crazy split tape on Family Time. Now, Shearing Pinx I'm familiar with as I played a gig with them recently in a glade of the lake district and the guitar player was hash-hounding me for the rest of the day. I remember them being an all-out shambolic and exciting noise rock band with more tunes than drugs (at least on that day anyway...) but here they deliver a side of controlled improvisation. It's real restrained and kinda kooky but it eventually picks up and gets well good. Twin Crystals I know nothing about but from the sounds of it they totally rock! They deliver a side of blistering lo-fi rock that touches on hardcore, doom and garage rock in equal measures. They've got some beefy riffage going here, some messed up drone going on there and some classic 70's-style Sabbath moments filling the spots in between. Kinda grungy too...oh, and it's probably one of the roughest recordings I've ever come across. Sounds like the Norman tape heads could do with a little clean
