I have an irrational hatred of bands doing DJ sets, and DJ mixes. I fume whenever I see Amazing Indie Band (DJ Set), because I don’t understand why playing guitar well merits getting headline DJ slots. However, Friendly Fires are exempt from this hatred. Because, they are in fact, great DJs. Drummer Jack Savidge was actually a DJ well before 2008 when the band gained their fame with their self-titled album. So, I was pretty pleased when I heard they’d be doing the new Suck My Deck. It’s finally out, the tracklist looks great, the mixing is deliciously smooth, and there’s a nice general disco theme. Happy days. You can pick it up here.
