Nature Experiments

This new album is filled with hefty hooks and sugar-spun noise pop. Nature Experiments is as robust as a Big Sleep record gets, bursting at the seams with restless rhythms and choppy power chords. »

Friend Roulette Premier "Earthrise" Today. Cassette release show tonight at Union Pool!

Friend Roulette premiered a new single today, Earthrise, from the upcoming I’m Sorry You Hit your Head LP due out in late April. The band is also releasing a very limited edition EP called Gold Bricks today. 50 copies exist on handmade Cassette tapes that will be available at the show at Union Hall tonight. The B-side of the cassette features some very interesting songs you can only hear on the cassette. If happen to be alergic to 1/8” analog tape, please find the iTunes version (minues the tapes b-side) here on iTunes!

The band some some nice coverage from Alarm Magazine, Deli Magazine, and SIMGE!

“...the seven minute interstellar journey that is “Earthrise” which represents the band’s interpretation of what it feels like to travel through space. The ever changing track spans a wide gamut of influences and styles each landing the listener on a strange, new planet with every new sonic launch forward.” —SIMGE

“Earthrise” is seven minutes of pop dynamics that lean on swanky woodwind harmonies (with a banjo cameo for good measure).” — Alarm Mag

“Brooklyn’s Friend Roulette sounds like an indie band formed by an established and constantly high Hollywood movie soundtrack composer.” — Deli Mag

Friend Roulette leaves on tour including tons of dates at SXSW soon. Full dates coming soon.

Please listen to Earthrise below.
