Pizza/Tideland - split

Artist: Pizza/Tideland
Title: split
Release: 2009
Label: Cosmic Debris Records

Track List:
1. Pizza - Do-Do-La-La
2. Pizza - In Your Head
3. Tideland - Graveyard Song

Both Pizza and Tideland hail from Sterling, Virginia. That town should sound familiar to some of you out there. It's the home of pg. 99 and a myriad of other fantastic bands. I'm pretty certain Tideland has at least one member who was in pg. 99, and you can hear the noisy Sonic Youth influence that pg. 99 was apparently all about. However neither Tideland or Pizza is remotely close to screamo or hardcore.

Pizza's two songs are nice and quiet. Relaxing even. But not in the almost eerie way fellow Virginians Pygmy Lush can be at times. In comparison the Tideland side of this 7" is pretty loud. But not as loud as one might expect if all you've heard from the Sterling scene is pg. 99 or Pig Destroyer.

I'm still not sure what the hell the animal on the cover is supposed to be. Some kind of rat dog? I've included 600 DPI scans of the cover and insert so maybe you can figure it out.

You might still be able to buy this over at Robotic Empire. Their store doesn't say how many are left in stock and this has been out for a while so don't hesitate to order it.
