    Mutual Friends, a loose song-cycle, is entirely winning.

    'Mutual Friends' is an album that just gets better and better with every listen.
  3. Boy manage to tease something close to pop perfection.

    With the combination of these instruments and intimate vocals (not to mention some single-digit counting on “Waitress”), it would be odd not to notice that the album can sound a touch Feist-y. Yet the delicate and intricate progressions the songs present make this record Glass and Steiner’s very own.

    Their debut LP Mutual Friends, despite getting bogged down in the middle stretch, is as an album undeniably catchy and, somewhat surprisingly, experimental.

    Saw them live in Montreal and they were nothing short of amazing! Had the opportunity to meet them, talk to them for about 15 minutes, etc. They are extremely nice and down to earth!
    As for their album, I do not have enough things to say about it it is nothing short than amazing! The percussion, the guitar, the vocals, the LYRICS, the flow, everything about it is great. Whether you want a slow ballad song, or a song which makes you sing loudly and dance in your car, you've got it!

    A great band that will make it far in the near future (much like Daughter did!)
