This is how you make a split 7”. Choose a band that you’re friends with—whose sound complements but varies from yours—swap members for a song, put an inside joke on the front, record a weird cover that geeks will shout for at your shows. Black Wine play grungy, melodic punk and cover Devo. Brick Mower play gritty, mid-’90s pop punk and cover Gaunt. Take notes.
