Brooklyn band Friend Roulette’s name alone brings to mind a very particular image: a group of friends hanging out, swapping stories and instruments, stringing together fun, lively tunes into a huge, beautiful racket. With six members and some of the most unusual instrumentation going (counting two drum sets, violin, bass clarinet, and ewi — that’s an electronic wind instrument for the curious — among its arsenal) plus the occasional addition of a string quartet, this is a concoction truly deserving of being described as dreamy chamber pop. Don’t let the break with rock conventions scare you, though; this is catchy, accessible, lively music that’ll grab any listener and hold on tight.
Featured song: “I Guess”
