Fake Problems / Ninja Gun

Split

This split 7” from Sabot teams up two punk sensations for one exclusive track each. Fake Problems offer up “The Manliest Man of All Men,” which is very much in tune with their preceding full-length, It’s Great to be Alive. The band builds on their quirky punk sound with a hint of bluesy rock and roll and indie rock flavoring; think The Rolling Stones meets Against Me! and Modest Mouse.

Ninja Gun offers “Time and a Half,” which showcases a more pop-driven sound as compared to Fake Problems. The song boasts a slight Americana tinge and the vocals are much more smooth and poppy, recalling Billy Joe Armstrong at points. I wasn’t as into this song; it just seemed a bit too cutesy for my tastes.

If you’re a fan of PBR, The Fest, beards, and flannel shirts, then you should definitely take the time to pick up this 7” - that’s if you don’t already have it.
