Exclusive Album Stream - Gentle Friendly's Electronic Puzzler ‘KAUA'I O'O A'A’
 

Every bit as perplexing as its tongue-twister title, electronic adventurers Gentle Friendly drop a new album next week, the brilliant ‘KAUA'I O'O A'A’. The record, Londoners David Maurice and Richard Manber's third since forming after finding a drum-kit and some coffee in a skip (true story), is named after an ethereal species of Hawaiian bird thought to be extinct. Fittingly, it's a rare, colourful beauty that seriously soars when it hits its groove. Fans of Animal Collective, Battles, rainbow keyboards and fizzing electronics, sit up and take note - you won't want to miss this. Stream the whole thing below, via ever-reliable Brighton indie Fat Cat Records.
