At the tail end of last year, the wonderful guys over at Community Records released a must have / must hear split featuring Tallahassee’s Ex-Breathers, Newtown’s Ovlov, New Orleans’ Woozy, and Nashville’s Gnarwhal in association with Hex Records and Social Cancer Records.
The four- way split contains 8 hard hitting tracks. a collection of songs ranging from driving hardcore to introspective indie rock. Ex-Breathers start the split journey and captivate the listener with their Daughters’ like filthy riffs, bass lines and ferocious vocals. Ovlov’s renowned abrasive, post punk attributes follow the first 3 tracks making it impossible to stop listening. Woozy’s melodic mathy essence fused with delectable vocals and an upbeat feel pull you in further and then Gnarwhal close the record with their experimental jazzcore roots. Each composition comprising the record, compliments the raw projection of the release. Melodic and more-ish.

3. Ex-Breathers – Modern Reach
4. Ovlov – The Great Ohmu
