Pleasant Screams and Sacramento Records team up to present two of Sacramento's top ear-blasters! Over the past few years, THE CROISSANTS and CHARLES ALBRIGHT have built up nice following through constant gigging and a steady stream of quality records. This split LP continues their run. The Croissants have had six years to rummage through the garage and what they've found is a snot-covered miscreant, a brat barricaded in a corner with takings from mom & dad's liquor cabinet and a record player blasting "Annette's Got The Hits" and early FYP records over and over. "Buzzkill," "Trashworthy," "We're In The Basement," and "Life's A Nash" gives you a hint of what HANS, HEATHER and GABBA are up to. Charles Albright, fronted by Charles Albright (imagine that!), crashes through a wall of feedback like a crazy-eyed Kool-Aid man. Ginn-rips and frantic pounding punch drunk through "Tire Shredding" and "Short Skirt," a sly super-charged homage to mid-period Black Flag. Albright ends with a marathon assault on the chestnut "Louie Louie," a version that takes psychedelic noise into the dentist scene from Marathon Man. This has to be the most relentless take on "Louie Louie" since Jordan Michaels unleashed his glam-punk-disco dance 12" on the world in the early '80s.

"Croissants’ got that Adolescents sound, both literally and figuratively. High energy, upcycled, previously released “We’re in the Basement” sparks into five unapologetically whiny Ramones-esque punk songs full of tight riffs and non-stop slamming drums. Definitely “Trashworthy.” Charles Albright dishes up plenty of unrelenting feedback and signature wail over six songs that simply rip. The songs are also upcycled from previous releases, and I can’t say I’m disappointed to hear them again. “Short Skirt” and “I’m Just a Fine Young Man and I’m Doing So Well” happen to be my personal faves, so the cherry picking was on point. –Camylle Reynolds (RAZORCAKE MAGAZINE)
