Record Store Day Black Friday is going to bring with it a ton of cool shit but the Boris/Asobi Seksu split 7″ has to be one of the standouts. On the A-side, NYC shoegazers Asobi Seksu do a softened, brightened cover of “Farewell,” from Boris’s breakthrough 2005 LP, Pink. On the flip, the Japanese metal weirdoes deliver a heavily distorted, sped-up version of Asobi Seksu’s “New Years,” appropriately renamed “Neu Years.” The limited Asobi Seksu X Boris split drops on Record Store Day Black Friday (the same day as Regular Black Friday: 11/23) but you can listen to both sides now.
