AllMusic Review by

The other split release this year from American Laundromat (the other is from Caulfield Sisters and Julie Peel) is two originals. Blake Babies and Antenna guitar guy Strom, helped by New York vets from the Silos, is Wild Turkey-soaked in beguiling Americana on "The Long So Long," like Big Star gone alt country. Even better is the streamlined, slow power pop groove of Boston's DItM, i.e. Brian Sullivan with friends, more like a lighter Sloan or Mania Lucy Show than the Belle & Sebastian tune he took for a name. Ah, 7"ers, how we missed ye! Leave 'em wanting more.
