Dream Friends 

Longtime pals love spontaneity

Upon arriving at the home of Jonathan Carroll (guitar/vocals), I was roped into a game of four square with his five-year-old neighbour. After the interview, I was invited to stick around and watch Star Trek or “maybe go to Value Village.” Everything with this band is so delightfully copacetic. They insist the band works because they’re all at the same skill level: “When we started, I only really knew how to play in 3/4, but our new songs are in 4/4,” says drummer Allan Lavell. The only disagreement between these longtime friends is what exactly their name means. “I’ve always understood it in the imperative sense,” says bassist Luke Langille, “As in ‘Dream, Friends!’” Carroll tells me his jittery pop group hopes to record more this summer, release something on vinyl and do “more punk-like things, outdoor shows, spontaneous shows. I’m working on organizing a rival festival to M-Fest called MmmmFest, on Needham Hill.”

  • Depends how much cash I, personally, will receive
