    genre: screamo/indie-rock
    country: Australia

    Bears and Treehouse are both from Hobart, Tasmania. Bears (not to be confused with BEARS!) has been awesome on every release they’ve done so far. They’re probably known best for their 12″ split with Todos Caerán but they’ve got a rocking demo as well (and Simon put together the 21 songs comp released earlier this year).  They don’t let me down on this either. The beginning of Punk Rock is a chill melody to make love to which eventually builds up into a skramaganza that’d make Orchid pee themselves in delight. Scissorwings is a 6 and a half minute jam that pulls at your heart strings. In both vocals are fucking brutal. The musicianship that Bears brings to the table is always refreshing. They remind me of a slower Tristan Tzara. This split was the first time I had ever listened to Treehouse. They’ve got way more of an alternative-rock/lo-fi indie-rock/surf sound. Reminds me of a more punk version of Wavves or Chalk Talk or something. All in all it’s really catchy stuff. For both bands, the recordings are not extremely well produced but it’s actually a relief (seriously Touché Amoré rip off bands, calm down) and it provides a unique sound. This was released only on cd-r (I think) but it’s already sold out!
