Snake Apartment were a breath of fresh air when I first heard their split with Landed. The riffs that this band produced would make Gregg Ginn blush. Unapologetic “My War”-B-side-worship. They are a band that wrote seemingly perfect SST or Sub Pop records sounding songs and managed to not meander into hardcore territory, but they were still clearly a punk band. There’s actually a point during the intro to the title track when they hold the “Slip It In” guitar chord.
When this record ventures out of Kira sounds, there are parts that feel like more upbeat Tad songs and a few King Buzzo sounding songs. This isn’t to say this whole record is riff-lifted or that it’s just a tribute album, it actually holds it’s own as a pretty awesome bunch of songs. For reference in where this chronologically lays, Parts Unknown released this album around the same time as Pissed Jeans "Shallow" and Billy Bao's (criminally underrated) "Dialectics Of Shit." I’m bummed that Snake Apartment is gone, but I’m glad the people involved with Snake Apartment are helping make Brainbombs records come out again, so there’s that. Also features cover art by the infamous Gunsho.
