2013 Thrill Jockey


Solo album #2. Twelve tracks of heavy electronic psych laced with crusty field recordings of basketball games, failing radios, Con Edison strikes, and a Tokyo pachinko parlor. Cover art by Maya Hayuk.







"They're not electronic dance music; they are marches and rockers, with melodies running at speeds from processional to punk while whizzing, crashing, sliding, beeping, chirping sounds ricochet all over. The key is that the melodies are hearty ones.. It's a merry onslaught." - The New York Times

2008 Important Records


Solo album #1. Pre-apocalyptic party jams abound. Cover art by Shawn Reed (Wet Hair/Night People)



"While Ghost Town lacks the archness of LCD Soundsystem or the full-pelt charge of Holy Fuck, its dizzying shifts between harmony and simmering white noise, and Friel's playful but intense layering of contrasting sound textures make it the equal of both." - Wire

Broken Man Going To Work EP

2001 self-released (CD)


The deep old school. A few of these tracks got retooled and renamed on the first Parts & Labor record . A few of them were recorded with a boombox in my 1999-2001 Bed-Stuy basement. Probably for true heads only, but not without it's charm. There aren't any more CD covers/sleeves left, but I'm happy to just throw the CD in with other orders, or just send it to you if you pay for postage.

"Strange and wonderful, and best of all, unlike anything else we can think of."
- Time Out New York
