DOWNLOAD: Friendo - Oversees (MP3)

Friendo

Friendo are a trio from Calgary, Alberta that includes Women drummer Mike Wallace. Here, Wallace plays guitar and sings and there's not much similar going on, musically, with his other band. Friendo's debut, Cold Toads was originally released on cassette but has been picked up by St. Ives (a Secretly Canadian subsidiary) which has made a super-limited-edition vinyl run (200 pressing with handcrafted covers), plus digital. And those cassettes are still available. You can check out one of Cold Toad's tracks, "Oversees," at the top of this post.

Friendo are currenty on a North American tour that hits Atlanta tonight (6/8), and which will be in NYC this weekend. They play Cake Shop on Friday (6/11) and Glasslands on Sunday (6/13) (tickets). Their tour mates are Chicago's Yourself and the Air who to these ears sound a little like Loney Dear (or even Chin Up Chin Up if you remember them). Yourself and the Air are currently working on their first album.

Siamese Dream and Mellon Collie were really good albums. Got them when they came out, still throw them on at times and think they're great. It saddens me when I hear bands from that era when I was a teenager and hear their new stuff and it's so clear how they've lost it, they sound desperate to recapture a sound/magic that they haven't had in 15 years (holy shit).... And then I realize that is not unlike a lot of us.

Wonderful post and the location is beautiful and elegant in design and information and everything>>> to Favorites
Amazing is an enormous understatement. One of the best electronic shows I've ever been to and I've seen well over a thousand concerts. I had no idea Vladislav Delay was as good a drummer & percussionist as he is- fabulous and he kept everything swinging with a very unique style of playing. If you missed this you missed out big time...
