Jacket Weather/ The Highwire Act/ I Hear Sirens
Self-Titled Three-Way Split
Street: 05.31.08
Jacket Weather + The Highwire Act + I Hear Sirens = top acts from Utah Valley

Three different bands (no side projects of one musician) separately recorded three songs and then combined their efforts to put out a well-polished and good-looking album. Jacket Weather is a culmination of four talented guys who listen to a lot of The Promise Ring or Stella Brass. They are the new awesome, local, post-hardcore group. The Highwire Act is a simple guitar/drum duo that plays not-so-simple guitar riffs glazed over with bass, similar to No Age without the glare. I Hear Sirens is like DoMakeSayThink if they had crafted gorgeous melodies while still in high school. This split is worth owning if you can find it. Try Jacket Weather’s MySpace profile.
