Here's a killer split 7" that I've been meaning to post for a while, but completely forgot about until today.  First up is Alarms & Controls.  Alarms & Controls are a  four piece band from Washington D.C/Maryland who formed in 2010.  Alarms & Controls features members of Antimony, Circus Lupus, The Crownhate Ruin, and 1.6 Band.  Alarms & Controls play a killer style of music 90's-early 00's DC influenced post hardcore and indie rock.  On their side of the split, Alarms & Controls offer up two tracks of killer post hardcore and indie rock.  The second two songs come courtesy of Secret Smoker.  Secret Smoker are a three piece band from Baton Rogue, Louisiana who formed in 2012, by the looks of things.  Secret Smoker play a tense and urgent style of 90's influenced hardcore/punk/screamo.  Musically, Secret Smoker can be said to be influenced by bands such as Shotmaker, 400 Years, Sleepytime Trio, and Breads And Circuits.  On their side of the split, Secret Smoker offer up two tracks of discordant, tense, and urgent as fuck sounding 90's influenced screamo.  Overall, this is a killer split 7" and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!
