Tops – Easy Friends (single) / 2012

Here’s a new track by TOPS from their forthcoming Tender Opposites. They’re also starting a North American tour in a few weeks. Lovely minimalistic pop. Arbutus is home of some weirdos like Grimes and Doldrums but TOPS is a group on there that you don’t need to avoid.

Debut release Tender Opposites, by Tops took me by storm bout 6 months ago.   Originally a cassette from Arbutus Records, I was thrilled when it got a proper vinyl release from Atelier Ciseaux, however Ltd to 250 copies = long gone.

Nice to see they’ve got at least one b-side for us out on a 7” backing album hit Diamond Look.  Then again every track on Tender Opposites is a single hit in my mind.
