Dishwasher - Always Call Your Boyfriend
Cotton Mouth - Hive Of Bees

I’ve been obsessing over the recent split release by the oddly domestically named Dishwasher and Cotton Mouth. The two bands are fairly different, but share a certain indiepop space that completely agrees with me. “Always Call Your Boyfriend” is a slice of lo-fi singalong with overt shades of “Be My Baby” styled R&B. “Hive Of Bees” is more of a perfectly lurching pop oddity, but too short by far. I demand full lengths from both of these bands.
