Best Fwends Fworever

Best Fwends invade Iceland.

Estranged Austin/Fort Worth duo Best Fwends, whose hysterical debut album, Alphabetically Arranged (Moshi Moshi), was recently heralded by Vice as the "Worst Album of the Month,"is taking its retro anti-pop to the overseas equivalent of CMJ, the Iceland Airwaves Festival. After that, the two plan on rummaging through Europe, but there's no telling where they'll end up.

In case you've never caught Best Fwends live, here's a video that sums up the experience. Check out their Myspace page for a killer cover of Necros' "Tarnished Words."
