Published Sep 29, 2014Two weirdo Guelph duos have come together for a new 7-inch. Badminton Racquet and Baby Labour are playing some shows together next month, and they're marking the outing with a new split 7-inch single.
Both bands are guitar/drums duos, and judging by these two songs, both have an interest in twitchy instrumental math rock. Badminton Racquet's "You Boys & Your Quilts" is the jauntier of the pair, as its exploratory structure includes crunchy chords and twiddly riffs up the fretboard. Baby Labour's "Coke Party," on the other hand, is more jarring and dissonant in its intricate shifts and jumble-y rhythmic complexity.
