I wound up seeing Sister Kisser more than almost any other band last year (three times, all at the Whitney House), and their sets were always flat-out great; like a lot of bands from their area, or, the bands on Dead Broke Rekerds in particular, they've got a rough-around-the-edges punk sound that mixes a good amount of rock in it-- Replacements, AC/DC, Nils, Judas Priest, and whatever. They've finally got a record out, a split LP with Ink & Lead (fellow Long Islanders who lean more towards melodi-core; good if you like Hostage Calm and Jettison, I guess) and the label, Gruff Beard, did a really good job with their first release: nice thick vinyl (the edges are square, even), hand-assembled jackets, hand-stamped labels, and the first 25 mail orders came with a numbered vellum insert. I think this actually came back from the plant in December, but they didn't start mail-order until the last couple of days of '09, so for the sake of my own stupid numbering system I'm going to count it as a 2010 release.
When you order the record through PayPal you get the download code right away, which includes 8 extra songs from Ink & Lead. This song, my favorite song from the record, isn't from the download, though-- it's my own 320kbps vinyl rip.
