An almost weekly assortment of musical oddities purchased by or given to POF.
FANG ISLAND – Fang Island (sargent house) – Post-punk (primarily) instrumental rock with Nick from Daughters. Playing the Ballistic Missile & Parade of Flesh party in Austin on 3/20.
FRIENDO – Cold Toads (secretly canadian) – “Guitar-driven trio, featuring Michael Wallace of Women, largely inspired by ‘90s experimental rock, ‘70s punk and ‘60s pop. Their songs range anywhere from breezy, effortless jams, to pulse-pounding post-punk gems. The multi-instrumentalist members love to mix harmony with noise, creating their own seasonal landscape.” MP3 of “New Sibley”
