If you’ve ever wondered what a Mike Kinsella punk song would sound like, now’s the time as Owen speedily covers Into It. Over It.’s “Anchor”, who returns the favor with a sweetly atmospheric rendition of Owen’s “Poor Souls”. Personally, Owen’s version crushes Into It. Over It.’s original version of “Anchor”, maybe that’s because I really love Mike’s vocals? Yes, it is.
Both songs have me thinking it would be radical to hear each band put on a new hat, and experiment with their sound a bit, at least for an EP. For now we will have to make do with these covers and the 2 new originals on this EP.
Release date is set for 8/21/15 via Polyvinyl Records. More on the Split – polyvinylrecords.com/oweniioi
