About Alap

This is not a typical Netherfriends release. This album is basically an improv album with elements of ambient and drone. It is entitled Alap, which is a term used in Indian classical music for a section that is improvised and free flowing. The recording of this album was something I did for a week during Christmas because I don't celebrate and I was bored out of my mind!! I had been working hard on the 50 state songs and needed a short break. I recorded one song a day and was inspired after playing a similar sounding set at a yoga studio in Chicago. I figured since the music was so easy and fun to make that I could record one session a day for a week and will be releasing one song a day at a time. I think the music should be listened to while relaxing or doing work. Easy listening d00ds. -Shawn This album is FREE! Just put in 0 in the name your price!

Netherfriends Biography

Emerging from the rooftops of Chicago in 2007, Netherfriends are that bastard-psych-pop-catchy as hell band that you've been searching for. They signed with indie label Emergency Umbrella in 2009 and released their debut 6 song EP "Calling You Out," fused heavily layered arrangements with group sing-a-longs, spare pianos, synths, glockenspiels and other hard to place, but familiar sounds. The three-piece psychedelic pop band grabbed some early spark and attention from places like Blender and RCRD LBL and have played at both SXSW in Austin and CMJ in New York City. The band released their first full length album "Barry and Sherry" in 2010 via Lateral Label and Emergency Umbrella, followed by "Alap," an ambient album, and "Angry East Coast 7"," the first release of the band's 50 songs/50 states project in 2011. Netherfriends currently features Shawn Rosenblatt (vocals, guitar, keys, samples) and a rotating cast of other musicians. Press: "Netherfriends make some of the most likeable music this kid has heard in quite some time." - RCRDLBL "Wander into bar. Buy cheep beer. Discover Greatness. Banging out sweetly distorted sing-along melodies on guitar, keyboard and drums, Chicago trio Netherfriends delivered the thrill of the unknown." - Blender Magazine
