Reviews O Pioneers!!! / The Anchor Split

O Pioneers!!! / The Anchor

Split

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. I’ve had countless people suggest this band to me in the past, but I just can’t get into their recordings. I will admit these songs are better than what I’ve 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 Majority’s 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.

Stuffed & Ready is the third album released by LA band Cherry Glazerr. It’s surprising this is their third album and it’s taken me this long to notice them, but regardless, ...
