New! Gentle Friendly – "Clean Breaker" and "RIP Static"

I was intrigued when I read about a London band called Gentle Friendly who was being compared to Animal Collective, No Age, and Fuck Buttons. Not because I like those three bands (I treat them all like a casual pot smoker treats bud), but because I like the style. I like the idea of waves of slightly abrasive sound swirling together to make something beautiful and complicated.

On first listen, Gentle Friendly is not my new favorite band. Then again, this seems like the type of music that takes more than one listen to really wrap your head around. So the fact that this sounds fresh on first listen is a good sign, but I’m still not sure about it. What do you think?

    I can see the comparisons to AC, but this isnt as good. There is not as much going on here.
