Tracklist: Friends - Friend Crush

This has been hanging around for long enough for a decent amount of blog hype to spring up over the course of the first half of 2011, but better late than never and all that, and besides the video has only just been released. What we have here is a Brooklyn outfit with what must be a Brother-style bait to copyright industry lawyers of a name and a set of influences planted in various stages of cool New York clubs of the last thirty years, from ESG rhythm as master through to Lykke Li-esque (by way of Best Coast without the parasol, weed or cat) warped, vaguely psyched out pop, all with just enough enigmatic vocal echo. They may have nothing else. We all got burned on Architecture In Helsinki, after all. But for right now in this summer it works splendidly.
