Assembling two of Denver’s best post-punk/punk bands on one 7-inch, this split is not only sonically fantastic, it’s also aesthetically amazing. Each yellow-vinyl record comes with a handmade, screen-printed wooden cover, a semi-transparent, hand-numbered insert, a full-color lyric sheet, and a download code for the e-songs. It’s quite the package. The Glass Hits side includes the songs “Action Potential” and “Dying on the Vine,” both of which perfectly complement the band’s previous material — like a potent mixture of the grit of Murder City Devils and the mayhem of Swing Kids. It’s also the last thing the band will ever commit to record, since it has since called it quits. On the Accordion Crimes side, singer Bryon Parker decrees, “I don’t consider myself an artist,” over the band’s patented Big Black-inspired bedlam. Even if the songs weren’t as brilliant as they are, this split record would be worth owning for the sheer blood and sweat that went into making such a beautiful specimen.

-Brian Polk, Suspect Press

"Accordion Crimes "New Technique" has a disjointed murky beat, an unsettling loop for bass or low tuned guitar to force this single note down like some kind of audio foie gras, in the way they become a post punk combination of Shellac and Gang of Four and hit those perfect references for me. The line stuttered in perfect time with the spastic chord bursts not...Jackson Pollack with nimble stops and starts, perfect control over huge tough sounds. The vocals drop way out into that room underneath the floorboards like Mr Pollack himself chained up in the basement."

Accordion Crimes Denver, Colorado

A band that were influenced by the sounds of cities in the 90's. Louisville, Chicago and D.C. can be heard on various cuts.

We were obsessed with releasing limited runs of vinyl and performing with respectable acts.

A Minor Forest, The Regrets, Speedy Ortiz, Ought, Parquet Courts and Metz were kind enough to share stages with us.

All that remains are these sparse, distorted recordings.

Track Name: New Technique
this is a canvas
interlacing lines
you threw the paint
the critics despise

you are not jackson pollock
you are not alcoholic

this is a painting
of abstract degree
it speaks for itself
oh, intoxicated me

I am not jackson pollock
I am not alcoholic

new needs new technique
new needs new technique

i don't consider myself an artist
I don't consider myself an artist
if you don't consider yourself an artist
if you don't consider yourself an artist
