The Safes/Blackbelts split 7"

(Wee Rock) Wow. Hearing a single this mindblowing by two local Chicago bands I've barely paid attention to makes me feel like I'm so out of the loop I can't see the loop. The Safes' snotty, angular power pop is kind of sinister despite the sweet-assed hooks. Blackbelts are doing slightly trashy 50s/60s sock hop/frat pop which is what every band in the world should be doing, obviously. You will wear this records grooves down to dust.
