Friends and Friends of Friends Vol. 5


  • Only available on CD!

    Friends & Friends of Friends is an annual compilation of music curated by Tender Loving Empire. We collect submissions from our friends and (as the title might suggest) from their friends. We request specific songs that we love and include our favorite jams from bands on our own record label. The result is a collection of songs that is by far the best grouping of music that we’ve ever been able to put in one place, at one time. 47 amazing songs on two discs coming from artists from all walks of life, styles of music and geographical locales combine to create the perfect blend of raucous sludgery, jangley summer tunes and endearingly mopey ballads.
