This Brooklyn six-piece make orchestral, sweeping compositions sound as simple as lullabies. Chamber pop riddled with baroque elements and unlikely rhythms, their sonics swing from ghostly croons straight into robotic bleeps. Throughout it all—strings, brass, two drummers and two vocalists—Friend Roulette gamble they can pull off the juxtapositions, and believe it or not, they manage it.
