The song is pretty simply, with a sparse, catchy guitar riff, a nice drum beat and Ruban Neilson who joins in later, vocally imitating the guitar in the chorus, all with that lo-fi rough tinged edge of static. The song does nothing truly mind-blowing but it sticks to the basics and provides a solid, get stuck in your head, gritty semi-psychedelic indie pop/rock song.
These Portland based rockers recently ran through Athens in support of Toro Y Moi, along with Bass Drum of Death. If you enjoy ” FFunny Friends,” their self-titled album is definitely worth checking out, especially the funkadelic, falsetto “How Can U Luv Me,” featuring more of the band’s spelling deficiencies. Anyways, enjoy, and remark on how I didn’t say “they won’t be Unknown for much longer” and check out their official music video for the song (Or does that count?).
