Stephen Steinbrink, who puts out music under his own name in addition to releasing songs as French Quarter, is a former Phoenix-based musician who relocated to Olympia, Washington over the past two years, where he’s recorded at Calvin Johnson’s Dub Narcotic studios. His first French Quarter album (self-titled, put out in 2008) earned a shout-out by Thurston Moore and Byron Coley over at Arthur Magazine, who deemed Steinbreck’s music “lovely straight folk-yearn,” which is a pretty apt way of putting it. This track, “I Really Want To Be Your Friend” comes off of Steinbrink’s 2010 album, It’s Not Just Kissing, which saw release on Gilgongo Records.
