AllMusic Review by

A pretty contradicting split EP between two Miami-based bands. On one side provided by Spark Chamber, the drone of monotone vocals and an all-around presence of moping guitars results in a second-hand version of the Afghan Whigs without the melodrama (or Soul Asylum without as much intensity). Then there's the energetic but moody cuts of Machete, who provide a completely different approach of spastic, multi-directional indie that's not angry enough to come across as punk -- especially with the high, almost squeaky voice. Original, if not the most inspiring split EP to come out of Florida.
