I am crazy excited to bring you the exclusive premiere for the entire 3-way split cassette between I Hate Sex, Algae Bloom and Black Knight Satellite that is being released on August 2nd via Never Better Records and Damn Fine Tapes. As of now you can pre-order the cassettes which are limited to 100 copies right here.
Open this link and jam the songs whilst reading this, should you so choose. Edmonton's I HATE SEX open the split with a slow, groovy, spoken-word 90s emo section that transitions to a screamier, multi-vocalled approach at 1:13 but "This Floating World" retains its hopeful and patient instrumental speed throughout its 2:22 tenure. Tracks two and three belong to BLACK KNIGHT SATELLITE from Vancouver and combine for more than double the I Hate Sex track time. "Unrequited Love! The North Pole Aurora" is a very screamy affair with at least two vocalists shrieking their lungs up in Deers!/Kelut fashion and nears four and a half minutes while "Nü Jersey" is over almost before it begins at a condensed 1:08 of chaotic, screamy hardcore. Closing up shop is ALGAE BLOOM from Norwich in the UK and their song "A Weight in Space" which, on Earth at least, weighs in at 2:19. This is another grooving, screamy emo/hardcore song that feels right at home on this release. No band or song shines above the rest here, as everyone involved brings their A-game and each track is worth at least one listen, if not many.
