Superdrag/The Anniversary: Split 7" EP
A few nights ago I was browsing the record bins at Streetlight Records in San Jose (an excellent little independent record shop) and I was realizing how much I love EPs. They are so . . . digestible. Just 4 or 5 little songs, a nice collection or introduction or sidetrack from whatever else you may already have from that artist. They are just perfect.
I recently came across a little 7" of Superdrag and The Anniversary, a joint effort from 2001 with each of them contributing three songs. It was the first in a similar EP series from Vagrant Records, and is a stellar collection of pop songs that showcase some fine (and thoroughly enjoyable) songwriting with a pleasant & catchy mid-'60s feel.
One to enjoy, for sure:
Take Your Spectre Away - Superdrag
The Emotional Kind - Superdrag
I Guess It's American - Superdrag
O Lady Butterfly - The Anniversary
Anias - The Anniversary
Up In The Sky - The Anniversary
