Small Brown Bike & the Casket Lottery Small Brown Bike & the Casket Lottery

Here's a switch, a split EP that isn't a split at all but a true collaboration between Michigan's gut-punk gurus Small Brown Bike and Midwestern emo maniacs the Casket Lottery. Instead of each band just contributing three songs, these six songs feature each band contributing one new track, two co-written tracks, a sweet ballad performed by a hybrid of the two bands and an unsettlingly flawless and reverent rendition of the Queen/David Bowie classic "Under Pressure." These six songs may be among the best material either band has ever recorded, and considering they are both great bands, that's saying something. (Second Nature)
