Your Daily Lick: The Splinters

Splinters EP (self-released)



Picture this: a hand-labeled CD-R inside a white paper sleeve decorated with one-of-a-kind splotches of red and black paint. The four Splinters created every copy of their debut EP out of devotion to the low-budget, DIY ethic that permeates their music, which resembles Beat Happening and early REM in its pop-inflected take on the ramshackle underground.
