LP: Pill Friends – Blessed Suffering

I’ve been following Philadelphia’s Pill Friends for a while now, and they finally dropped their debut LP last week.  After listening to a few singles leading up to it, the full LP Blessed Suffering does not disappoint.  Lots of Lo-fi bands with Emo undertones have been gaining momentum across blogs this past year, and it would be easy to lump Pill Friends’ music in with the rest, but for some reason this LP stands out.  Lead singer Ryan Wilson isn’t afraid to lay the emotions very thick in his vocals, and although I’m sure that will piss a few people off, I think it works really well with Pill Friends’ instrumentation which a lot of the time isn’t as overly dramatic as their aesthetic may suggest.  Listen to two of my favorite songs off of the LP below and stream the whole thing after the jump.
