I found this via a Google search and downloaded, listened to and dug it, so I decided to post it on here. Everything below was originally posted by Fritzler (via Wikipedia) on his now defunct blog Sounds Like Sunday.

Evergreen was a Southern California underground post-punk band from the early-to-mid 1990s.

They had several releases over their lifespan, including two 7"s, a split 7" with Los Angeles hardcore/screamo band Still Life, and a much sought 12", most of which was released on Anomaly Records. They still have a 7" out on San Diego's Gravity Records. They are notorious amongst record collectors due to the rarity of the "7 Songs" LP (Anomaly Records).

Band members include Aaron Calvert (cousin of Todd Calvert, drummer/percussionist of Gertie Fox) on guitar (now in Winfred E. Eye), Andy Ward on bass (also of Antioch Arrow), and Jason Boesel on drums (now in Rilo Kiley[1]).

one of my favorite bands ever.

One of the, if not the best of the genre. Evergreen/Still Life splits are quality emo overload.

Not to be confused with the first/lesser-known Evergreen from Louisville, KY

I searched the globe for these records 5 years ago. I think I found this same bundle but thanks for posting it anyways. It is great to see that people took notice of this band. They had a hold on me for a good ten years.
