New York five-piece My Best Fiend is the latest act to join the always-impressive Warp Records. Known for their killer live shows and super-melodic tunes, it’s an appropriate fitting. Sure, we might all typically associate more electronic sounds with Warp, but this is the same label that’s put out albums by Battles, Grizzly Bear, and CANT. So what better home for a band that embraces the forward-thinking nature of those three acts (and the others on the label)? I thought so.
Anyway, My Best Fiend has also shared their first single on Warp, the excellent “Higher Palms.” You can stream/download the track via the widget below. It’s due out Jan. 24 as a limited 7-inch single. And for anyone residing nearby, they’re playing in Brooklyn at Shea Stadium on Dec. 15.
