SotD - Family Friends


Neil Gardner is a bit of an audio guru, being the brains behind an award winning spoken word production company. But sometimes he likes to retreat from the digital studio to listen to some music analogue style, on vinyl. This time he finds some Family Friends...

Format: 7″ black vinyl

Side A: Look the Other Way - a glorified gluttony of wow & fluttery instrumentation, topped by lazy lo-fi vocals. A weirdly discordant indie pop pleasure palace drowning in an oddity of musicality. Toe-tapping rhythm hidden beneath strangely swirly sussurations of sound.


Side B: I'm Like You - Tingly tangly twangly guitar slathered in reverberant 90s style vocals. A wide, laconic detuned eton mess of a track. Sharp and sweet detuned riffs wrestle against dreamy indie party shuffling vibes.

Finyl Thought: a whole heap of swirly whirly music that grabs your attention then slaps your ears up and down
