In February Last.fm debuted the first installment of its Last.fm Presents New York concert series with a lineup of local NYC rock bands Friend Roulette, Quilt and Amen Dunes. A heady rush of psychedelic tinged rock, the show was a great start to the series. If you weren’t able to make it there, however, don’t despair for we’ve got an exclusive live recording from the show of Friend Roulette’s “Golden.”
Friend Roulette are a Brooklyn quintet that have a distinct, prog-y sound that is enhanced by some unusual instruments. Singer Julia Tepper’s violin figures heavily in their melodies and John Stanesco’s EWI (electronic wind instrument, for those of you not in the know) provides some nice off-kilter flourishes. Check out this live version of “Golden” to hear the band’s unique musical style.
