On February 2nd, Topshelf Records will release a split from Kind of Like Spitting and Warren Franklin & The Founding Fathers, titled It’s Always Nice To See You.
Indie cult favorites Kind of Like Spitting formed in 1996 in Portland, Oregon. The band, led by singer-songwriter Ben Barnett, regularly toured in the US and released twelve albums in seven years. They broke-up in 2006 but Barnett re-formed the band earlier this year. The current lineup consists of Barnett, (guitar/vocals), Brian Grant (bass) and Dante Johnson (drums).
Their first track in nearly a decade, the hard-hitting “Bullied By A Bee”, premiered with VICE a few days back, take a listen below. Yeah, it’s a little lighter than some of the stuff on this page, but it’s kind of funky.
