KENT STATE / AT THE HEART OF THE WORLD - SPLIT TAPE
Kent State started as a side project of Deep Sleep guitarist Nick and his girlfriend Emma. Last year they released three eps; Spahn Ranch, Challenger and Walk Through Walls, displaying their love of short songs, Guided By Voices, lo-fi psychedelic garage punk and noisy 90's shoegaze. Kent State recently moved to LA and recruited dudes from Knife Fight, Tear It Up and the Love Below to assemble a live band. At The Heart of the World is Danny from Ruiner playing harsh noise/doom metal in the ugliest of ways, not unlike Purient, Godflesh, etc.
