FAMILY FRIEND: Self-titled: CS

Jan 19, 2016

If Paul Westerberg were to nearly drown in an enormous milkshake only to be rescued, a bit too late, by Tommy Stintson, and Paul said, “I’m not the same anymore. From now on, I only play acoustic guitars and drink skim milk,” it might sound like Family Friend. A random sampling of lyrics: “It’s a short life of trouble, girl / for a boy with a broken heart.” Nine songs, cover art features a sleepy dog.
