Fruit Bats: "My Unusual Friend"

I have a sweet spot for Fruit Bats, I must admit. Even envisaging a new album puts me in mind of cloud-watching, xylophones and ukuleles, daisy chains, eating delicious frozen yogurt of the Mr. Yogato variety. "My Unusual Friend" loses a little of the lo-fi twee feel, but substitutes it with an undeniable piano-pop sound and a few more power chords than usual.

The Ruminant Band is set for an August 4 release, and Fruit Bats are touring this fall.

    Hey Kate,

    Fruit Bats are a new band to me. I've had a listen to a couple of tracks on their myspace and I must say I like what I've heard so far.

    Thanks for sharing.
