Have you ever wondered what quirky Brooklyn chamber pop outfit Friend Roulette sound like stripped down? Of course you have. While part of their impressive talents and endearing charm is the various moving parts they have going on at the same time, it's refreshing to see that they don't need to resort to the many spinning plates tactic if they don't want to. During CMJ, Friend Roulette performed an intimate little session for Last.fm solely composed of Matt Meade who traded in his guitar for piano, Julia Tepper remaining on violin/vocals, and Tlacael Esparza on drums.
The additional treat was that they broke out some new old songs that we've yet to hear alongside some of their glowing list of standards. And Last.fm filmed it. So if you missed it, you're in luck. And if you were there, you can relive it. Things don't get much better.
