Friends of Mine is the second solo album by anti-folk musician Adam Green, released in 2003. It relies heavily on short violin-driven melodramatic pop songs and has a much more polished sound than his 2002 debut Garfield. Green's voice is significantly different from any of his previous work, including that of The Moldy Peaches, putting on a deeper '60s influenced spin than ever before.
