DOWNLOAD: Making Friendz - Situation (MP3)
Making Friendz aka Tami Hart
MEN (featuring JD Samson of Le Tigre) started a tour at Bowery Ballroom back in March. That tour ends tonight, April 7th, at Music Hall of Williamsburg in Brooklyn with opening sets by Australia's Romy and No Bra (who literally wears no bra, or shirt even). Tickets are still available for tonight's show and I have a pair you can win. Details below.
MEN bassist Tami Hart is otherwise known as Making Friendz, who used to be signed to Kathleen Hanna's Mr. Lady Records, and is now signed to Brooklyn's Last Bummer Records who are releasing her next album, Social Life, on 6/21. The first track from that high energy "sweet, sweaty mixture of lo-fi punk and glossy pop, R&B and disco" is called "Situation" (hopefully not a reference to Jersey Shore). You might remember dancing to the song at one of Tami's live shows, or heard the demo on MySpace, but now the album-ready, studio-recorded and mastered version is finished, and it makes its first appearance in this post. Download it above. Stream it below.
