I love splits! Everytime I go to a decent record shop I always head straight for the split 7" section. There have been quite a few classics (in my opinion) over the last few years or so. Here are some of my favs....
1905 / Amanda Woodward
Closure / Breakwater
Copout / Facedown
Danse Macbre / Killed By Malaise
The Fiction / Birthday Boyz
Haymaker / Fucked Up
Transistor Transistor / Mannequin
My Disco / Off Minor
Plot To Blow Up The Eiffle Tower / Necktie Party
Okara / Mothman
Van Johnson / Kaospilot
Tunes For Bears To Dance To / El Minotaur
Many more to follow.......

Insane chaotic screamo hardcore with furious vocals, spazzy breaks, discordant grooves, and a balance between heaviness and driving riffs.
YOU AND I
The final recording from this legendary New Jersey band. Combining the greatests aspects of bands like Lifetime, Unbroken, Converge, to name a few, but adding their own style to the mix, more so on this album than on their earlier efforts. You and I songs are often quite ecclectic in styles, but they seem to always pull them off so smoothly. There are mosh parts, sing alongs, all the parts every good band should have. This record seems to even show hints of grind, too. However, they always maintain their melodic base that made so many people fall in love with this band.
