Firefriend – Yellow Spider

firefriend

I would have posted about this last year when it was released, but I was a bit busy with an album or five. I shall now start paying attention to the mailouts that I get from nice people, but there still won’t be any quotable guff coming from me, let me tell you.

I was reminded of this album because Firefriend have a two track thing out now – do we still call those singles? I’m getting older and more confused. ANywho, one of the people who I follow on bandcamp bought it (one of the people who buys about 20 things a week; I mean, c’mon – how do you even do that?) so I came and checked it out and I did something I rarely ever do, I watched the videos for each track, mainly because the lack of sleep I promised myself at the beginning of this 10 day stretch without going to work is havingĀ  quite the spaced-out effect on my brain. The songs themselves are very good. The videos had a quite narcotic effect on me too, in their way, and seemed to suit the mood of the music despite their very low budget approach. But that might be the current state of my awareness for you.
