Let's Go: Best of Splitsville[CD]
Splitsville, out of Baltimore, md, was born out of the ashes of the critically-acclaimed power pop band greenberry woods. Matt huseman remained on guitar, his twin brother brandt huseman made the switch from bass to drums (which he had never previously played), and they joined up with bassist/keyboardist paul krysiak to record their first album, "splitsville USA". Splitsville recorded two studio albums for New York city indie label big deal records. The first of these was "ultrasound", featuring fourteen fast and furious pop tunes. The record garnished good reviews, a fantastic tour with the ladies of shonen knife and a couple of trips around the states. Splitsville followed up with "repeater", a more crafted and cerebral outing. In 2001 "the complete pet soul" was released to international critical acclaim. The album featured four songs culled from the ep 'pet soul', plus six new originals, and a cover of burt bacharach's "i'll never fall in love again". This cover was later featured in the kirsten dunst movie 'get over it'. The CD has been released through air mail records in Japan and Houston party records in europe. Air mail also released the import album "bulk rate", which included choice cuts, live tracks, re-mixes, and a previously unreleased cover of the who's "our love was". in the fall of 2001 splitsville became a four-piece. With the addition of tony waddy on lead guitar and vocals, the band was able to add songs previously unperformed in their live set. Throughout 2003 splitsville was busy recording songs for what would become their fifth full-length album, "incorporated". The album made it onto several "best of 2003" lists and promptly sold out in the US within the first month of release. And finally, we have the release of the splitsville collection, 'let's go! The best of splitsville'. with tracks hand-picked by the band, 'let's go!' is a 25-song, 77 minute long bargain priced overview of splitsville's entire career. Among the tracks included are 'yearbook', 'manna', 'day job', 'forever', 'white dwarf' and 'headache'. "let's go!" is the perfect pop way to experience your fist taste of splitsville.
