Local bands Nasalrod and Swamp Buck have teamed up to put out a delightfully weird split 7-inch on Poison Apple Records, and they celebrate its release tonight. Nasalrod's contribution comes in the form of the genre-bending anthem "It's Our Pleasure." The four-piece covers a ton of ground in a short amount of time, blending power-rock and hardcore punk in an epic display. Nasalrod drummer Spit Stix deserves a bunch of credit for also pulling double duty as producer here—not only is the track a mind-boggling percussion work-out, it also manages to bottle the group's boisterous and frantic live show. Just when you thought things couldn't get any more bizarre, Swamp Buck offers up "First Testament," a tightrope-walk between brooding post-punk and full-on psychedelic freak-out territory. Combine the two songs and you've got a one-two punch that's well worth a spin. CHIPP TERWILLIGER
