Best Friends - Mankind by Art Is Hard Records published on 2012-08-06T09:18:06Z As you well know, we're a keen advocate of the split release (the art of pairing two or more bands together on the same release). These releases tend to be put together, when the bands in question are part of the same circles or share a similar aesthetic. In the case of our latest release (aih012) this couldn't be less true. In this case these two bands live together in Sheffield, sharing everything from milk to the gear in the basement they both practice in. However the sounds of these particular bands could not be more different. Best Friends offer the sound of fuzzed-out, nostalgia filled garage pop whereas Grazes bring fast, melancholic noise to the table.
