    FRIENDO is a three-piece, guitar-driven band 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. Michael (Women, Azeda Booth, Monkey) has been drumming since he was a child, playing in bands, and eventually wanted to explore the melodic side of music and songwriting on the guitar. Nicole (Puberty, Hunter-Gatherer, Topless Mongos), an avid music lover and collector, began to teach herself various instruments after being inspired by other musicians in her life. Henry (Beija Flor, Monkey), a polished bassist and guitarist, has taken on the role of drumming for the first time. The group has subsequently swapped roles from their respective instruments, becoming total amateurs creatively tapping into uncharted spaces.

    The band chose to self-release Cold Toads on a limited run of un-mastered cassettes, providing the perfect format for their intangible sound. Cold Toads is a home-made recording project, using whatever they could get their hands on; tape decks, four-tracks to cassette, hand held portable recorders and built-in computer mics. The sound that emerges is a soothing lo-fi odyssey that transcends time and will only get better with each listen. It was then re-released (on vinyl) by Secretly Canadian offshoot St. Ives. They also contributed a track to recent split 7” with Women, Cold Pumas and Fair Ohs on Faux Discx.

    COLD PUMAS specialise in pounding, motorik repetition that grabs the groove for dear life. Running rings around themselves with exultant abandon, haunted by grand visions, combining cyclical, harmonised guitar riffs, impressionistic vocals and interwoven rhythms to great effect. At times recalling the metronomic tendencies of Abe Vigoda and the extended, mesmerising pulse of Neu or Boredoms, Cold Pumas echo in a cave very much of their own.

    Over the last couple of years they've released a split record with Male Bonding through Faux Discx, a RMX EP with Hungry For Power and a 7” on Upset The Rhythm. Look out for a recent split 7” with Women, Friendo and Fair Ohs, as well as an new single on San Diego based Volar Records too.
