mp3: TOPS – “Easy Friends”

Grimes turned us on to her Montreal homies TOPS when she took over our blog back in February, and the band has a limited new white vinyl 7″ single due next week on French label Atelier Ciseaux. A-side “Diamond Look” is one of the Fleetwood Mac-indebted highlights from the band’s excellent/underrated Tender Opposites LP, and now we have the previously unreleased, dreamy soft-psych b-side, “Easy Friends.” Tender Opposites is out now on Arbutus. Catch the band on their forthcoming North American tour, dates after the jump…
