Label: Self-Released
Tracks: 6
Length: 23.0'

Here's a killer new 10" featuring new material from two Pittsburgh, PA bands T-Tops and Cyrus Gold.  I was really psyched to get a request from Patrick from T-Tops to review the new record because I really dug the band's last full-length.  For those unfamiliar with the band, T-Tops is a three piece band from Pittsburgh, PA who formed in 2012.  T-Tops play a blown-out, dirty as fuck, and sludgy style of music that incorporates elements of punk, grunge, and sludgy noise rock within their sound.  T-Tops features members of Don Caballero & The Fitt, so going on the Don Caballero connection alone, you know you're in for something really special.  Musically, T-Tops can be said to be influenced by bands such as Shellac, Hammerhead, Bleach era Nirvana, The New Brutalism, Big Business, and early 90's AmRep noise rock bands.  On their side of the split, T-Tops offer up three tracks of killer punk, grunge, and noise rock.  The next three songs on the split come courtesy of Cyrus Gold.  Cyrus Gold is a four piece band from Pittsburgh, PA who formed in 2015, from the looks of things.  Cyrus Gold play a killer style of music that incorporates elements of punk, grunge, sludge, and noise rock.  Musically, Cyrus Gold can be loosely compared to bands such as Ken Mode, Jesus Lizard, early Torche, and Fight Amp.  On their side of split, Cyrus Gold offer up three tracks of killer punk, grunge, and noise rock.  Overall, this is an amazing split 10" and should not be missed.  Highly recommended!  Enjoy!  Look for a physical release of the split on April 30th, 2016.
