The bands on this split couldn't really sound less like each other, which I personally think is awesome. END OF A YEAR seems more bent on bumming us out than any other time I've heard them. If you're unfamiliar, they play potent, stylistically awkward Revolution Summer-esque emo, and generally rip.
SHOOK ONES, on the other hand, deliver a handful of short and to-the-point songs that sound, to me at least, like their catchiest material to date. Still super fast, still super melodic, still super poetic.
