September 9th 2008 - APF featuring on American Compilation
The song "Archipelago" is featured on a compilation cd released by US label
Series Two Records.
August 29th 2008 - Two albums recorded // Label Needed
It's been a while since we uploaded our website. Since last time, CJ has recorded
several cds with his solo project ONDO and
I've been releasing my third solo album in Europe. A Perfect Friend has been very
prosperous too although we haven't been that visible on stage. We have finished our
second album as reported, but also recorded most parts of a third one "Ant vs Ant Lion"
which is a little more edgy and cinematic. We have a sample from these sessions, a
song called The Artificial Lung, up on our myspace HERE
We hope to find an interested label to have any of those released or both.
February 6th 2008 - Demo & Outtakes CD-r
As reported in last post, we have finished the recordings of our second album that
will hopefully be released later this year. During our recordings we've gathered
quite many songs that didn't really fit on any album but that we still want to do
something with. Therefor we're launching this demo&outtake cd-r Graduation Day
the first in a planned series. This will be sold at shows and through the website
only and is the first in a planned series.
January 21st 2008 - New album "Timber and Modern Ways" recorded
This weekend, we finished (except for one guest appearance) the recordings for our second album "Timber And Modern Ways". Ten songs are landing in on a little more than 40 minutes. The release date is a subject for a future post, but most likely during 2008. The album tracks "Maple" and "Post Rock" are available for listening on our myspace-page APF @ myspace
During our recordings we got quite a lot of material that we liked but didnt fit on the album and we're going to make something with some of those too.

Yesterday APF did their first ever live show...
The album songs "Welcome Aboard" and "Strings of Hayden" (in a 30 sec longer version) are available on A Perfect Friend's myspace-profile A Perfect Friend
Australian national radio ABC recently played A Perfect Friend in their show "Sound Lab", "fantastic" was the judgement.
APF's album got a good review over at Allmusic Guide. 3 stars out of 5. "a promising first effort.
Audiversity.com gives a raving review to A Perfect Friend's album. From the review:
"[APF] do a great job of crafting a very organic album out of mostly sounds created from electronic knickknacks. It stutters and clicks and crackles, but is always counteracted with warm touches of acoustic guitar, accordion, organ or something else with a very autumnal tone.
Friday 17th August will be the date when A Perfect Friend make their stage debut. The venue is Koriander in Karlstad, Sweden.
APF met up this past weekend and recorded big parts of a new album Somewhat more dynamic and minimalistic. Tracks include: "Post Rock", "Timber and Modern Ways", "Branch Fever", "The Wrong Side of You", "Graduation Day", "Archipelago" and "Sail the Soil"...
Three days ago were the official release of our album. First in Benelux and then in the rest of the world throughout June. Drop us a line if curious how to order your own copy. Amazon should do the trick. Scandinavians use Dotshop.

STILLL releases APF's debut album June 07th! The label describes it as: "APF could be ranked among the quiter moments of Sigur Rós, the icy electronics of Radiohead and the lyricism of Johann Johannson".
