We recently came across the quirky debut EP from Philly band Friendship, who were mysteriously added to a show tonight at 3rd & Girard (see the flyer with the giant rubber duck above). The EP is called THE FURTHER YOU KICK IT THE BIGGER IT GETS and on it, the band explores an interesting collection of sounds, ranging from lo-fi home recordings, to freak folk, to ramblings that could rival mewithoutYou or Listener.
You can listen to the EP via the Youtube video below. The track names aren’t listed, and frankly, not much else about the band is listed anywhere, but trust us – you’ll want to listen all the way through. Plus, the screencap of someone scrolling through creepy Craigslist ads is entertaining in itself. We recommend track #3 , which starts at 7:46. It’s a hazy, pleasing acoustic song with lovely female guest vocals that might remind you of the National.
If you want to find out more about Friendship (we sure do), you can go to their show tomorrow with Friend Roulette, Legs Like Tree Trunks, and Roof Doctor. Here’s a link to the event page.
