AllMusic Review by

Released around the same time as his second LP, Storage, and the reissue of his 2007 first LP Dumb Children, Wolfe has also placed a song on the split 7" (also for purchase digitally) that appears on neither LP, and is more quality. With its double-timed acoustic plucking, it's particularly Dimes-like -- at least until the contrasting Pete Townshend power chords appear like deus ex machina. Meanwhile, his friend Grabb offers another slice of his winsome, quick-paced folk-pop that feels so refreshing after the heavier metallic ballast of his Scouts Honor records.
