Her Next Friend: Disaster Casual

Indie Rockers Her Next Friend hail from Virginia and their debut album Disaster Casual is an adventurous blend of indie, garage and classic rock sounds with shades of REM, The White Stripes and The Hold Steady. A three piece they consist of John Burton on guitar and vocals, Alex Kulldell on drums and bassist John Rapoza with the occasional keyboard embellishments. For the most part the eight songs here possess a lo-fi vibe with a decidedly mellow feel. Burton's lyrics are acutely observational, notably on titles such as 'House With No Door', 'Girls At The Zoo' and 'One To Avoid' and his wry narratives are driven along by a stripped down guitar sound with a predominantly mid-tempo beat.

Not an album that will appeal to all but certainly contains some fresh, incisive and intelligently crafted songwriting. Check out a couple of the tracks on their MySpace where you will also find a cover of 'Seven Nation Army'.
