Eyes & Ears - Burn It To The Ground Cassette


Snappy Little Numbers (2018)

Burn It Down To The Ground is a cassette that compiles the entire recorded output of Denver based band Eyes & Ears.  While they were the first band that Snappy Little Numbers released a record by, I have to admit that I'm not particularly familiar with them.  A quick trip over to Discogs reveals that they have a few singles and a split LP to their credit and from what I gather all of those songs are present on this tape.  On top of that there are ten additional songs that are being released for the first time.

Each of the twenty-one songs on this cassette has scuzzy garage rock vibe to them, but most of them are catchy enough to keep me interested.  There are a few that I don't dig quite as much like "Explorer" that are a bit screamy, but when the band is working a hook like they do in "Howl at the Moon" it's hard not to nod your head along.

All in all, it's a totally fine cassette.  I wouldn't say it'll change your life or anything like that, but for six bucks, you could certainly do worse than Eyes & Ears.
