Friends with Benefits Twins (Gem Club Re-imagination)
First off, calling anything a “re-imagination” is a fantastic idea and should be used more often by bands and artists. Second, this version of Gem Club’s “Twins,” is one of the most inventive and brilliant re-works I have heard in a long time. It’s dark, it’s harshly reverbed and sounds like it’s been pushed through a chainsaw…but in the best possible way.
The new side project from Brian Bissart of BigColor just released a three song EP under the moniker Friends With Benefits. This project is a brooding and emotional psych pop experiment that howls at you with a fervor that builds and builds and finally explodes with pulsating drums, and twirling noise effects. When listening to FWB, I can’t help but be reminded of another psyched out glam pop favorite, Glitter Bones, not surprising, they happen to be close friends with Bissart.
So the story goes, Menomena and Glitter Bones got together and ate a bunch of acid, they kidnapped Youth Lagoon, corrupted him, and he was forever changed. Friends With Benefits is the result. I’ll take two.

In Case You Missed It Over The Weekend…
A friend and I drove to San Francisco over the weekend to visit my old stomping grounds. Of course our road trip wouldn’t be complete without a stop at Harris Ranch (to go pee and buy snacks).
