This here isn't your average split single. It's the first in a series of "reissues" from Portlandia/Trenchmouth chap Fred Armisen's "record collection".
A well trained listener like myself, however, will observe that Armisen himself written the songs and played all the instruments. This is essentially a novelty single where he apes styles of the past. As "The Fingerlings" he is a British synthpop band, while "The Blue Jean Committee" play a laid back countrified late '70s soft rock.
The genre-parodying is musically not a million miles from Flight Of The Conchords. They're reasonably nice songs but not very funny, I kind of feel like I'm missing the joke here.
