Sordid States 6 way split 7"

This record gets the 2014 award for most confusing use of format.  Sordid States is the title of this record featuring six different bands on a 7" record.  When I was young we used to call these "compilations" and they were usually on cd or LP.

Regardless you'll hear six bands that all distinguish themselves from the next. Some peaks and valleys present themselves in terms of recording quality here, as the overall sound is not very consistent from band to band.

I'm particularly keen on this Anodes track, which stunningly kicks off this record with some great screamy intensity. Check it out, listen to six different bands and perhaps one may capture your eye.
