Portland, OR's floral patterns. and Rochester, NY's California Cousins put out a split last month with two new songs each, and if you dig DIY, underground emo/screamo, you should make sure you don't miss this one. Each bands contribute two songs, with California Cousins offering up heavy, mathy, chaotic screamo while floral patterns. explore the genre's slow-burning, climactic post-rock side. All four songs are great, and three of them now have videos. California Cousins gave "Cracked" a spooky video that should go well with your Halloween hangover, and floral patterns. put together past tour footage for a video for both of their songs, "Sunset Cherry Freeze" and "Ted Kennedy Driving School."

Check out both below, and pick up the "Apple Jacks" variant of the 10" vinyl from Chillwavve Records, the "Mini Wheats" variant from Brace Cove Records, and/or the cassette from Sun Eater Records.
