In 2012, many bands could subsist on the buzz generated by singles as toothsome as "I'm His Girl" and "Friend Crush," both of which Brooklyn's Friends released into the wild last year. But the shapeshifting, Samantha Urbani-led R&B outfit hasn't rested — the former has racked up almost a million views on YouTube, the latter isn't far behind, and "Mind Control," their Paul Epworth-mixed latest, was deemed the "Hottest Record in the World" when it premiered on BBC Radio One earlier this year. All three feature on a debut full-length just as rich and varied, Manifest!, due next week via Fat Possum. Listen to it from top to bottom:
