GENTLE FRIENDLY

NIGHT TAPE

NO PAIN IN POP


Format: 7"
Cata No: NPIP004
Barcode: N/A
Gentle Friendly are David (vocals, keys) and Daniel (drums, organ). They found some high grade coffee and a drum kit in a skip in their adopted home of Peckham, South London. Matching these with some antique keyboards and samplers, they began to play songs in their basement until their neighbors chased them overground with knives. Night Tapes was recorded in early 2008 on a makeshift studio during a five day retreat to a countryside cottage. The tracks meld cutting keys and rolling drums with a backdrop of loops and feedback, transcending their influences ("anything screw'd & chop'd") to create something gleefully disjointed and chaotic. Since the recording they've honed their live show to a perfect outburst of organized chaos, playing with the cream of US talent (HEALTH, Ponytail, AIDS Wolf, Telepathe, Indian Jewelry). 500 being made, we get 450...best be quick...

Tracks:

1. Five Girl Night
2. XXXmas
3. Sky Burial
4. Ride Symbols

Press:

?live you will realise that Gentle Friendly do not just stride past you with a pop glint on their eyes that would have made the Unicorns or good ole' Yo la Tengo proud, they accelerate towards a place you might have visited before by the hand of like-minded explorers such as the Animal Collective, Silver Apples or Dan Deacon, the wall of a radiant horizon only 2 minutes away through which you crash in a collision that jolts you furious and gloriously alive..? ? 20 Jazz Funk Greats
