Sassy dance-punks Best Fwends posted a spanking new mixtape yesterday on Soundcloud. According to them, every track on the mix (which clocks in just over an hour) was physically ripped without any downloading. Surprisingly hard to believe in the digital frenzy of 2011. The mix is an all-embracing blend of hardcore-punk, retro dance, classic rock, and some queercore gems. Perfect for a spontaneous late night drinking binge.
After a couple EPs and a full-length on London based Moshi Moshi, these two spazzers have made a name for themselves in Europe while remaining relatively unknown in the states. Personally, I prefer them as a well kept secret.
