Bushwick’s miraculous band Friends announced their long awaited LP. Manifest! will be released on June 4 (June 5 for the US)! The album was produced by singer Samantha Urbani; multi-instrumentalists Lesley Hann, Matthew Molnar, and Nikki Shapiro; and drummer Oliver Duncan. The web site Alt Sounds informs that twelve tracks of Manifest! were recorded between last summer and this spring with engineer Daniel Schlett at Strange Weather studios in Brooklyn.

To tease us until June, the band has released their 3rd single Mind Control. You can take a listen to it here:

We love Bushwick band Friends to death. Until their rocket start last year from underneath the JMZ train tracks to world’s indie music scene, this cool bunch was often hanging out at Little Skips and getting lattes.  The band shot their first video I’m His Girl right here in Bushwick, and the single became an enormous hit. Let’s not forget about Friend Crush and  about the awesome cover My Boo.

Additionally, it’s really worth-while to listen to the lyrics of this band. They really seem to have it all together….
