Droughts/Frameworks/Kittyhawk/Prawn - 12“ Split (Fair Weather Records,2014)
This might be one of my favorites Promo Splits (at least I think, that this is one, because four bands with two songs each on a twelve inch record, seem like it). I never thought, that this becomes such a great record to me, as I bought it on a Frameworks show (yes the one, my former band opened), although I barely knew one band from this. But now, I own (many) records from three of them and that‘s only because, I haven’t found one from ‚Droughts‘.
And this is why I want to start with them, because although they seem to be the least famous band on this album, they aren’t bad at all. With their straight melodic hardcore/screamo style, they perfectly fit onto the B-Side together with ‚Frameworks‘. And to be honest, there was a time, where their both songs were my favorite ones, after the emo A-Side was ‚overlistened‘.
On this one, we find ‚Kittyhawk‘, the band from ‚Count Your Lucky Stars Records‘. I remember that these songs were the first, with a female singer, I had on my playlist and many friends and people who knew me were surprised, that I‘m able to listen to emotional and less screaming music. 🙃 But good enough, to get me their full length album ‚Hello, again‘, which I already talked about in an earlier post last year, I think. Meanwhile they quit unfortunately.
I had my problems with ‚Prawn‘ at first, because first, one song is an instrumental and I get a little bit bored, when there is just music. It‘s like something missing. But even the song ‚Laki‘ needed a long time to click with me, probably because I wasn‘t familiar with this kind of calm emo music. Meanwhile, I got two records, with many songs, I like really much and in search for their recent LP ‚Run‘.
Coming to the last band (and my favorite) of this 4way Split ‚Frameworks‘. As you might know their LP ‚Loom‘ was my AOTY 2016. But the reason why they grew to my heart are the songs ‚Presomnal‘ and ‚Preamble‘. They show everything that this band is: creative, emotional, versatile and skilled! And musically, they‘ve never disappointed me since.
