- One Inch Badge Split Series Vol 4 by Various
8/10 Mike Staff review, 15 July 2011
I like this whole One Inch Badge split series. They manage to put together really impressive and appropriate combinations of bands every time. This one kicks off with My Device's 'Sea Robins', apparently the final recording to be released from these funsters. It's a good 'un, too! Fast and noisy, with vocals and guitars chiming out a simple melody in unison to give it quite an Eastern feel. The Oneida track is pretty bizarre...just synth drones and pulses, really...kind of sounds like something that Liars would put in between songs on a record; you can't really call it a song, but these guys can do what they want at this point, can't they? Right...flip the record and you've got 'Incredible Visions' by Calories, who are the newish band formed from the ashes of Birmingham's Distophia. It's a pretty blistering, grungey cut. Really cool. Possibly my favourite song on here is Tubelord's effort, though. Often these guys are a bit too radio for me, and there's definitely elements of that here too, but this is a pretty awkward little number. It sounds pretty late-90s emo, but it's totally on the uplifting side. These guys' main downfall for me tends to be oversyrupiness, and they're still sailing close to the wind here but this track is totally like a rough around the edges take on early Jimmy Eat World or Death Cab for Cutie. It's making me feel a bit nostalgic. Proper charming stuff.
