The great state of Texas offers up two songs a piece from O Pioneers!!! and The Anchor. In the works for over a year, this split 7 is finally available to all who boast a beard!
O Pioneers!!! offers up two cuts of dirty punk that will appeal to anyone who loves Asian Man and No Idea Records. Ive had countless people suggest this band to me in the past, but I just cant get into their recordings. I will admit these songs are better than what Ive heard before; a quicker pace suits them well.
The Anchor is less punk and delves into a slight melodic hardcore style with their two songs. I get a definite Long Island sound as I listen to their tunes - particularly in the vocals, which bring to mind Silent Majoritys Tommy Corrigan.
Of the two, I enjoyed The Anchor more so; I am definitely looking forward to more from them. On the other hand, the jury is still out on O Pioneers!!! for me.
