Human beings make mistakes. That’s essentially the statement Blake Mills is making with the incredibly self-aware “Don’t Tell Our Friends About Me.” This is a beautifully written, impeccably produced and most of all, honest, folk record. And it certainly doesn’t suffer from having longtime collaborator Fiona Apple and musical mastermind Jon Brion helping out with vocals and instrumentation, respectively. Take a listen and get excited for his upcoming LP.
