The Beets // “Friends of Friends”

There is somethin’ so darling about the Beets; this song really nails its thumping beat and the long meandering narrative, about love, plane crashes, and getting lost, that ends with the refrain “not even all those friends of friends.” When Pedro and I saw the Beets perform on Amnesia’s stage, we got to witness the Queens-based band in all its quick-paced glory. “Friends of Friends” from the band’s third record, “Let the Poison Out,” was recorded, says the band, in two days, with a few overdubs, at Marlborough Farms by Gary Olsen of Ladybug Transistor. The band says that “Let the Poison Out” also marks the addition of Chie Mori, an important component as drummer for the Beets.
