Red Comes Ringin' 7"

Four singing, songwriting, dandypants/broham hybrids team up to give indie rock a categorical headache with unpredictable arrangements and enough sharp hooks to stock an end cap at Bass Pro. »

Friend Roulette signs to Goodnight! 10" vinyl picture disc release show 4/5 at the Mercury Lounge!!

Got lemons? Sure you could make boring ass lemonade, or if you are Matthew Meade and Julia Tepper you could make the most oragsmically delicious MDMA-laced lemon tart imaginable. In the summer of 2010, Matthew got hit by a bus and found himself facing 2 months of recovery without the use of one of his hands (a prickly pickle for a guitar player). But instead of catching up on the latest in day-time paternity test results and class action lawsuit commercials, he spent the time writing songs on one-handed piano with his friend and violinist Julia Tepper. The pair knew they had kindled something special and soon added John Stanesco on bass clarinet & ewi ("electronic wind instrument"), Nate Allen on bass, and Tlacael Esparza and Kyle Olson on percussion.

The band will release a 10” vinyl picture disc on Goodnight Records in May of 2012 and a full-length LP recorded by sonic warlock Paul Hogan (Frances), which will be released later this year. The band will celebrate the release of the picture disc this Thursday April 5th at the Mercury Lounge. There will only be a limited supply of the vinyl 10” available, so sharpen your elbows and be prepared to ruin a few relationships cos it’s gonna be a nasty scrum to get ahold of one of these puppies.
