Christmas Island / Meth Teeth: Christmas Island / Meth Teeth
On the heels of singles for HoZac and Sweet Rot and debut full-lengths for Woodsist and In The Red respectively, we're finally ready to roll out the long awaited double 7" EP from Meth Teeth and Christmas Island. These two West Coast bands offer opposing sides of the same coin. San Diego's Christmas Island don't play holiday music, but they do offer two sides of shambling melodic guitar-and-xylophone driven bubblegummy garage. The poppy vibes of the A-side "Ex-Beach" coupled with "Drawing Skulls", a revved up slide-driven stomper serve as a counterpoint to Portland's downer folk stalwarts Meth Teeth. Their dirge-like "Don't Come Home" is coupled with "Control" a song whose loner vibes might be the last thing you'd want to hear while jacked outta your mind on amphetamines.
