Friends of Friends
This disc came highly praised by someone whose opinion I really respect, so my expectations were very high, and I was not disappointed. Friends of Friends is from Tallahassee, but I can tell they are more than familiar with the No Idea catalog and are connoisseurs of the Gainesville sound. It's now my mission to turn you onto this album no matter where you hang your hat. Sure, gruff vocals are nothing new to punk rock, but it's been a while since you've heard rusty pipes ring like this. Add that to an awesome sense of chaotic melody and a good dose of DIY aesthetic, and you have the best darn Christmas present you'll ever find for under $20.00.
