After about 5 or 6 months it is finally here; my copy of the Whirr/Anne split! I think it was September that preorders for this officially went live, and it was expected to be shipped not far after that. But after several delays and manufacturing errors it has finally seen the light of day, and it was worth the wait.
This split is a double 7", with both Whirr and Anne playing two new songs. Anne provide "Pet Names" and "Occasional Lovers", which are both excellent tracks. I got a digital download of the tracks soon after I pre-ordered, so have had a chance to listen and appreciate them for a while. They are in similar vain to the previously released Power Exchange EP, which took the band in a slightly different direction to their first LP.
Whirr also play two great tracks, "Twist" and "Between Asleep and Awake". These two songs were really my first introduction to the band, and have since inspired me to pick up their Distressor LP which I posted about here. The entire split is streaming via Run for Cover's bandcamp page, check it out below.
While purchasing this I also picked up a copy of Anne's mixtape vol. II. That should see a post of it's own soon.
