Bill Botting was the bass player of Allo Darlin’ until their recent dissolution, but he’s now back in action fronting The Two Drink Minimums, which also contains Darren Hayman and Jonny from The Wave Pictures, among others. Better Friends is some sweetly melodic indie-pop with country leanings, sounding very comforting. Out on Fika / Where It's At Is Where You Are.

7/10 Staff review, 05 April 2017

You can tell that Bill Botting is a fun guy just by a quick glance at his moustache. He was in 'Allo Darlin' but is now having the time of his life making simple, tuneful and charming pop music. Just look at the picture of him alongside his band on the back sleeve. Has anyone ever been so happy? The really happy drummer from the Wave Pictures helps out too and the reasonably chipper Darren Hayman squawks some sax. You get the picture. 

All of this proves that should they land the coveted Wave Pictures support slot you'll be buying this LP. You'll be charmed by the homespun lyrics, wowed by the harmonies on the quirky 'Burning Bridges' and enjoy the honky tonk grooves of 'Treating You Right'  - sample backing vocal "he's an arsehole" and find yourself swaying happily to their version of Paul Simon's 'Graceland' which despite my screams of 'DON'T TOUCH IT!!!' is rather lovely,  - keeping loyal to the original whilst adding a homely charm.

Being the sort that prefers their pop a bit more sophisticated, this is enjoyable rather than life changing but for fans of Jonathan Richman, Herman Dune and Darren Hayman here's the next thing to sort of like.
