BEST BUDS SPLIT is an exciting new compilation of 3 singles from Pope (New Orleans), Nouns (Little Rock) and r∆chel (Nashville), and the first vinyl release from Nashville, Tennessee based DIY label Paco Tapes. The split opens with Pope’s track, ‘Animal’, a grunge-pop power anthem boasting a driving beat that is the definition of no-holds-barred. ‘Animal’ transitions into Noun’s ‘Mac Harris’, which is a complete shred-fest of a punk song. These guys absolutely kill it and keep energy high through to the very end until you’re begging for a release, and that desire is satisfied with r∆chel’s ‘Placebo Love’ – the final song on BEST BUDS SPLIT that begins with just a single guitar line and shaky vocals that completely get ripped open and saturated by the conclusion of the song for an intensity that keeps up with the rest of the energy found on this hot release. BEST BUDS SPLIT is a noise pop masterpiece worthy of replay for weeks while you wait for the 7″ vinyl to get off the presses.
