God help me, I can’t get this song out of my head. I had read a little about Leopold and His Fiction when their second album Ain’t No Surprise came out last year, but I never took the plunge. Now I’ve got to play catch up, and there’s no reason you all shouldn’t be coming along for the ride! “Golden Friends” is one of those rare blues/rock hybrids that all but defies “simple” descriptions, with vocals that deftly blend Jimmy Page and Jack White in a raw recording that does everything within its power to bring the live experience into the studio, whatever the cost. The band is up to the challenge. I’ll shut up and let you give it a listen, and you can share in the addiction. I’m definitely going to have to give this album a listen.
