This two-song release combining the joint efforts of Evan Weiss (Into It. Over It.) and Erik Czaja and Marcus Nuccio (Dowsing) can lyrically and literally be described by the two song titles, which are long, detailed accounts of the exact subject matter of each. The first of the two, “A Detailed and Poetic Physical Threat to the Person Who Intentionally Vandalized my 1994 Dodge Intrepid Behind Kate’s Apartment” sounds like it could have been straight off IIOI’s Proper, due in large part to Evan Weiss’ highly distinct voice. But at the same time, the catchy hooks and instrumentals aren’t far off either (not saying this is a bad thing in any way, shape, or form.) It boasts one hell of a catchy chorus: ”Have you ever felt your perfect teeth make a connection with Chicago concrete?” that will stick in your head for days.
The second of the songs, “Please Don’t Tell My Father That I Used his 1996 Honda Accord to Destroy The Town of Willow Grove, Pennsylvania In 2002”, is again, about exactly what the title says. However, this one includes a very Front Bottoms-esque horn section that differentiates it quite a bit from sounding like anything else either of the two bands in Pet Symmetry’s lineup have done, and it’s quite perfect accompaniment to this song about being “over-privileged youth seeking something to do.” Even if you wouldn’t consider yourself to have been “over-privileged” in your younger years, you’ve probably taken your parents car, and destroyed a bunch of shit just because you can (high or not) and it’s a catchy ode to being young and bored that everyone can relate to.
