Cursive/Eastern Youth

Split-8 Teeth To Eat You

Better Looking 12

Released on June 4, 2002

This item is not available for purchase. Sorry!

A trans-global split between Omaha, Nebraska's Cursive and Tokyo, Japan's Eastern Youth. Cursive begin the feast with four tracks of frenetic intensity and potent melodies splashed over their patented anthemic and technical rock explosions, while Eastern Youth mop up the plates with four emo-pop and rock combinations that spill over with introspective lyrics and pummeling guitar melodies.

I like Cursive a lot, but I didn't know much about Eastern Youth.

Cursive : It's as usual, original, anti-commercial and agressively depressing (I'm not saying it in a bad way).

Eastern Youth : All song are in Japanese ! You will understand nothing unless you're Japanese, but I don't care the music speak to me a lot, it is excellent post-punk - indie rock tracks

By the way I've bought because of the split one full album by E.Youth...

I only bought this for Cursive,and wasn't impressed with Eastern youth either. 4 great new tracks from Cursive with a running "family theme"...they seem to be getting even more bitter about life with each release,but play that sound off so well,more anthemic,powerful,complex instrumentation backing one of the best singers around (Tim Kasher) in independent music today....if you like Tim Kasher...check out his other band THE GOOD LIFE

I bought this mainly for the convenience of not having to import Eastern Youth material... but the Cursive half was a nice bonus! Cursive offer up four tunes that seem a bit more abstract than usual for them, yet retain the poetic intensity and musical competence even a minor fan could recognize. It was very enjoyable. Eastern Youth also served up some nice melodies, which comes as no surprise to me. Everything I've heard from them has been great (albeit a bit tough for my extremely limited Japanese language skills). What really gets me, is their ability to transcend the language barrier and still craft a unique piece with every track that leaves you utterly feeling the intention despite this set back. Oh, and don't worry... if you want translations to the songs, it's included as a link in the booklet!
