worst friends is ryan cavanagh and john paul jones (no, not that one) from brooklyn. they are also known amongst the beards as tom croose and slow hands. we actually suspect they are pretty good friends … making this sweet sweet music together and all … oh, and they just had a cool record out on oz-label future classic. the music sounds very unlike any short persons playing sports of any kind though slow and low is definitely the tempo. there is the beautiful balearic original, eric duncan gives us a psychedelic ride on the disco carousel and prins thomas channels the song through recently aqquired skills as a choirboy and 4 finger keyboards chords…. oh my….
worst friends bring the balearic and conquer summer in the north of the world! we are from australia though and heading into winter, its almost less than 15 degrees celsius. for real. this neat little ep is built to relieve the stress, and with eddie c of jisco fame on the remix it also bring a lot of party at the 7:15 mark.
worst friends have pressed up 444 limited and hand numbered 12inchers for their first vinyl release. the duo started out when they were drawn together by their mutual disrespect for one anothers tastes in music, and frequently throw folk, glitch, disco and techno at each other to entertaining results. their track pillows of wind begged the question what if pink floyd made a disco / house song? people were curious to find out, as it rose to the top of moodgadget records recent comp no new enemies vol. 1. worst friends were big fans of bostro pesopeos recent ep for permanent vacation and were thrilled when he said he was down to give pillows his remix treatment. that mix is the 12s a side and is a wonky, upbeat beach house groover that subtly builds until its impossible for the listener to keep still. the b side has worst friends on remix duty giving their take on friends praveen & benoit (pioulard)s death as a man. this side is a more slowed down affair at 104 bpm with some shimmering synths and building arps. the 12inch was mastered at salt by paul gold and plays at 45 rpm.
