Friendo is a three-piece band from Calgary, led by one of the dudes from Women, who were responsible for one of my favorite albums of 2008. Friendo creates songs that are lo-fi and guitar-driven, ranging anywhere from breezy, effortless jams, to pulse-pounding post-punk gems. The band recently put some of these songs to tape, using whatever recording equipment they could get their hands on, and titled the result Cold Toads. Through the St Ives label, run by the folks at Secretly Canadian, Friendo is releasing 200 limited edition, hand crafted vinyl albums of Cold Toads, which is also available on cassette and digital. Here's a sample:
