this is an exemplary split from fatcat offshoot Palmist records. I had heard earlier releases from both groups and this release shows that both bands are continuing to better themselves with the passing of time. the A-side is the Burning Yellows at their disheveled pop best utilizing answering services from the correctional facility in Frostbite Falls, MN. I love the up-bright jangly edge and the closer, "false horizons", has remained on my playlist for some time. The Whines are one of my favorite current groups. Their pop sensibility is underlined by an unfaltering dedication to imperfection, though, I'm certain the more this group continues to perform and record they will find perfection that much more difficult to escape. Great album for any season!
