Should you be perusing the new releases coming out of Motor City in search of something other than hip-hop and techno, it’s worthwhile to check out Friendly Foes, whose Born Radical album is unabashedly steeped in pop and early ’90s indie rock sounds. Originally a solo operation of frontman Ryan Allen, the project expanded over the last year to include bassist Lizzie Wittman and drummer Brad Elliot, and the self-proclaimed “power trio” has already shared a bill with The Walkmen, Jealous Girlfriends, Born Ruffians, and Cadence Weapon. Born Radical is available digitally right now, with a physical release to follow on January 13.
