Right now Hype is hosting a free stream of the new Friendly Fires album, Pala. Personally, I was listening all morning and this is a great, upbeat, dance party album. I’m assuming the title is a reference to Aldous Huxley’s utopian Island. I’m not sure if Huxley had electro-punk in mind as the music of choice for the people in his literary paradise, but the album does make you feel like you’re supposed to be on vacation. Perfect for summer.
Blue Cassette – Friendly Fires
Pala will be released May 16th, and you can catch Friendly Fires May 30th in Toronto.
