Friend Roulette - "Earthrise"
Moving through Friend Roulette's "Earthrise" is a spinning late-night trip on a subway train, where your reminiscing thoughts mix with the periodic-but-steadily-changing signal lights flashing past the windows between each station stop.
Earthrise clocks in at over seven minutes, but never drags or flirts with boredom. The instrumentation creates a liveliness, and multiple movements throughout the song transition seamlessly, giving the ear a hint of Friend Roulette's musical influences at every turn.
Friend Roulette manages to sound more like a Montreal indie band than most Montreal bands and cruises on top of a sea of complex musicianship that would make Anathallo proud.
