Here's the deal with Pocketknife and Adventures! With Might's fantastic split 7-inch: Each band contributed one new song and covered their favorite song by the other band. Though both bands have a strong affection for keyboards, Pocketknife's romantic hooks presuppose a certain gravity to your dance party. Adventures! With Might, on the other hand, make synthpop so libidinous that you can't hear it without blushing. While both band's original contributions are great, the covers are what make this record so compelling. Pocketknife turns A!WM's supersexy dance jam "You Think Too Much" into a contemplative, bass-driven song with a strong New Order vibe. In its original state Pocketknife's "Should I Kiss the Viper's Fang" was moody and intense; A!WM transforms it into a sweaty club song to which countless teenagers can lose their virginities.
