Our Friend and The Spiders - Walk Me Out
Artist: Our Friend and The Spiders
Album: Walk Me Out
Label: Independent
Released: May 2012

The latest (and first full length album) of the Canadian indie-band Our Friend and The Spiders is a successful representation of the kind of music most post-punk-rock bands of the day try to achieve. With plenty of dark and mysterious musical creation, made up of strong percussions, deep bass work, and experimental guitar, the songs on “Walk Me Out” are not only catchy but original in sound. Reminding of some more famous modern day alternative pop/punk-rock groups such as Imagine Dragons, Queens of the Stone Age, and Interpol, the Montreal-Based project still has plenty of ingenuity to keep the listener intrigued throughout the album. Having ethereal and powerful effects on the vocals, and intense instrumentation, enough to have your head pounding by the end of it, it is unmistakable that these French-Canadians are a continuation of the punk-rock revival. Of course having their own twist. My favorite song on the album (the one I seem to always have stuck in my head), is none other than the first one “Your Ghost”, which has a certain knack for gluing itself to the brain cells. The catchy-ness of the composition is most likely due to the guitar melody and the vocal performance, with somewhat easy to remember lyrics. Another notable song is the title track “Walk Me Out”, where you can’t help to jam along (and start banging your head). Ironically the happier sounding song of the album is titled “Black Shadow”. The Canadian group also features an original composition in french, “Ma Bulle”, which can’t help but impress the unsuspecting listener.

In all, one can’t help but be inspired by the indie band. Made up of Mathieu Morin on Lead Vocals and Guitar, Sebastien Rodriguez on Vocals and Electric Guitar, Pascal Sauvageau on Bass, Synthesizer, and Vocals, and Philippe Lupien-Grant on Drums, Percussions and Vocals, the team of OFTS prove their worth as artists with this Debut album. A must hear for anyone into (a lil’ softer version of) head-banging music.
