Solid rock album, all the way through, running from punk to power-pop to indie and every iteration between.
An Alt-Rock Gem!
What a solid debut for Split Single (Jason Narducy's latest project). No two songs sound the same and it is a strong power-pop-rock CD all the way through. Highly recommended to fans of excellent music.
It's been great watching Jason play with many legends and other great acts over the years, but to hear a return of his fantastic original music is incredibly welcome. The songs on this album vary stylistically while still blending coherently as one special piece, and that's not an easy thing to do. This is made clear immediately with the dreamy "Waiting for the Sun" followed immediately by the vicious "Monolith." This is not just a collection of songs, but an ALBUM. Too few of those are made these days. Support this guy. Buy this album. Enjoy it. He deserves it. I'm not sure you deserve to enjoy it, because I don't know you, but … I'm hoping karma makes the right choice.
About Split Single
Taking their name from one of indie rock's most beloved formats, the wily trio Split Single are fronted by singer/guitarist Jason Narducy and also feature drummer Jon Wurster and bassist/vocalist Britt Daniel. While Daniel's work with Spoon and Divine Fits is well known, the other two-thirds of the band boast pedigrees that are just as lengthy and impressive: Wurster and Narducy have both played with Superchunk and Bob Mould, while Narducy is also a former member of Verbow and Telekinesis. After forming in 2012, Split Single recorded an album's worth of tracks, three of which ("Fragmented World," "Waiting for the Sun," and "Last Goodbye") they shared on their SoundCloud page in 2013. That album, Fragmented World, arrived in April 2014. A follow-up LP, Metal Frames, arrived two years later, this time with Wilco bassist John Stirratt taking over bass duties from Daniel. ~ Heather Phares
