Ed Macfarlane / Various
Glistens - A Library Compilation by Ed Macfarlane

One of the perks of making music in a band that people like is that occasionally, someone will ask you to put together a cool compilation! Ed Macfarlane of Friendly Fires is in just such a situation, and has assembled his favourite pieces of 1980’s library music for you to enjoy. Glistens is a gre...view item »

The Pattern Forms
Peel Away The Ivy

Collaborative project between Edward Gibson and Edward Macfarlane of Friendly Fires, and Jon Brooks of Hintermass. The Pattern Forms is 80s soundtrack inspired, from heart warming ballads, to city nighttime drives, to youthful exuberance, loved ...view item »

Friendly Fires & The Asphodells
Before Your Eyes / Velo

The result of a collaborative project from Friendly Fires, Andrew Weatherall and Timothy J Fairplay (aka The Asphodells), this experimental record from the pairing of bands is upbeat, bouncy, and at ten minutes for each sprawling track, well worth a good sit down and close listen. On Friendly Fires’ own Te...view item »

Friendly Fires
Late Night Tales

Slightly biased as this contains two of my all-time fave tracks from the "ridiculous disco" genre but it's a great comp all round. About half way through, things take a downtempo turn and get a little esoteric. There's even a version of Love Song by Olivia Newton-John I'd never heard of before and, while that sounds like a kitsch joke, it's pret...view item »

Pala

Innovative, unexpected, futuristic. Just three words that can be used to describe the CD case - the CD pops out the top! Amazing. Unfortunately the music within sounds something like a Stock, Aitken and Waterman produced Curiosity Killed the Cat album. Uber commercial polished rave p(l)op. The thanks list on the sleeve is phenomenal-  I...view item »

Friendly Fires/ Holy Ghost
Hold On/ On Board

It's funk time. It's a good time but not my favourite time. That would have to be Hammer Time but never Miller time .This sounds great though. It reminds me of a modern Lalo Schifrin song. It should be used on "Shaft 4 -Grandson of Shaft". The lyrical content is quite interesting, almost exsistential. The second track on the FF's sid...view item »

Cross The Line EP

Friendly Fires then with a 3 track 10" called 'Cross The Line' Apparently they're being pigeon holed in the 'New Rave' scene. Even typing those words makes me eek. 'Strobe' is a manic ants in yer pants track somewhere between The Specials and Talking Heads with a side order of punk funk. On People In The Sky. ...view item »

Friendly Fires (Expanded Edition)

Idly reading the internet one day I found a list of lost albums in, I think NME. They'd asked a bunch of current musicians to name their favourite lost records, and Friendly Fires chose 3 I love - LFO's Frequencies, Boards of Canada's Twoism and Pansoul by Motorbass. I'd never heard Friendly Fires, but with such an overlap between their taste an...view item »

Photobooth

This is a brilliant EP. It's been out for a long while now, so I don't really understand why it's coming back to all the record shops...probably People In The Sky being lazy before...anyway, 3 great tracks, the last is a cover of Frankie Knuckles' Your Love, and is a much better version methinks. Anyway, buy this TODAY, especially since it's so ...view item »

Friendly Fires

Friendly Fires have got a new self-titled LP out on XL packed full of anthemic goodness. This isn't really my thing but I can see the appeal, there are all sorts of classic pop influences in the mix here, Liquid Liquid cowbells, disco beats, funk guitars, white boy soul crooning and big, big choruses.. This stuff's blatantly gonna tear up the indie...view item »
