Best Practices - The EP LP

Best Practices are the type of band I haven't heard in some time. I'll do my best at describing their sound as overdriven-melodic. The soundscape is intense and biting, while still maintaining it's melodic sensibilities. Perhaps it's the shouted vocal style or the fullness of the instruments, but this really drives some power across the tape.

These 5 songs are short and to the point (only one song breaks 2 minutes). In the brief time we get to spend with these folks they manage to win me over with their brand of gritty melodic hardcore. It's upbeat, happy and fun but without all the crap that usually goes along with being upbeat, happy and fun.

The artwork is pretty bad, but try to look past that.

Listen to it here.
