THE ROYAL BASEMENT PODCAST #15: UNLIKELY FRIENDS
If there is one band in Seattle that's making the kind of music that my ears want to hear, it's Unlikely Friends. Steeped in the world of early/mid-90's college rock, the men of Unlikely Friends take from the strengths of their previous/current other projects (D. Crane with BOAT and Charles Bert with Math And Physics Club, respectively) and create a unifying project, one that marries the raucous anthemic qualities of BOAT with the pristine glistening pop of Math And Physics club. It never sounds overthought or underprepared, but somewhere right in the middle, that perfect zone where great songs come from.
Charles and D. Crane stopped by The Royal Basement earlier in 2015 for a chat and to play a few songs. Tonight (10/3/15), they open up for Death Cab For Cutie at the Paramount in Seattle, WA. They may throw inflatable pizza slices at you, so be prepared.
