When listening to Nice Lawn it strikes me how good a sound you can get from recording on a 4 track porta Tascam. Quiet amazing I must say though I guess the nano second drop outs here and there is explained by recording the songs this way too. But all this is forgotten when you’re presented with such a track like American Cheez. Tears for the new world is good but a tad bit too long. Cut out 1:20 and we have winner. While Nice Lawn is pretty in punk New Fun Quintet leans on the more jangly pop side but with a clear amateurish punk edge. Spying on the neighbors is really great while Master TV could’ve been saved if it was shorter. Overall a pretty damn great split!
