Best Friends Cold Shapes Second single lifted from fuzzy garage-rockers Best Friends' debut album in limited 'pearlescent vinyl' 7" backed by non album track Wasting Time 'Cold Shapes' is a laid-back but uptight ode to impatience, anxiety and passing by the hours.

Nina Nastasia On Leaving Breathtaking and thoroughly beautiful album as standard from the inspirational lady, with a soaring and note perfect voice with a slight Will Oldham-esque twang in places to give it that hint of traditional country/folk stylings, as well as some lush guitar melodics and full band at times. Recorded by Steve Albini too so you know it sounds like a dream! Really great, make sure you check it... (NB) 1. Jim's Room 2. Brad Haunts A Party 3. Our Day Trip 4. Counting Up Your Bones 5.
