Modern mastring?

Recommended Posts

Jag har lyssnat en del till Flunk den senaste tiden, gillar deras sköna navelskådande. (Om än det låter lite väl mycket som The xx)

Men, ta en lyssning på deras nyaste, Chemistry And Math. 

Jag undrar om de helt enkelt har mastrat den digitala utgåvan genom att spela in vinylpressningen?

Det låter inte som "fejk-vinyl", utan som en vinyl-rip!

Vad tycker ni?

Förstår vad du menar, men tror inte de har rippat vinylen. Säkert en önskad ljudbild bara. 

 

Trevlig musik, som en blandning av Massive attack (Tricky) och xx :-)

Soft! Tyckte mig känna igen Emiliana Torrini på spåret Petrified, vilket stämde. Är hon med på fler spår?
I det lite suggestiva uttrycket får jag lite vibbar deras norska bandkollegor Ulver.

Jag vet inte hur mycket den damen samarbetar? Jag gillar iaf albumet så jag shoppade loss lite på Bandcamp (Vinyl+Download+Streaming) :)

Albumets info avslöjar inget om den Emiliana du nämner?

Seriously, how is it possible to spend two years and four months making a pop music album? It's obviously not because of a fetish with technical perfection. Not a single take on 'Chemistry and Math' has been recorded in a recording studio. It is all living room, bedroom or kitchen table work. Which is the way we have recorded all Flunk albums. Except the last, 'Lost Causes', which was mostly done in a studio. 

So really, how does it take 28 months to put together 10 tracks of alternative, lo-fi popular music? Well, life? Just life. We're busy with stuff like everybody else, ordinary stuff. And it's all in there, really. In the air in the recordings and in-between the lines of words. 

'Lost Causes' was probably about realizing defeat, identifying the disappointment of lost possibilities and basically accept it and get used to it. 'Chemistry and Math' might be about how you acknowledge the inevitability of the rules and patterns and natural laws, it's not so much mystery, it's math, and chemistry, and hormones, and a constant chaos of coincidence. 

Well, it’s in there, go check it out. In there are also a lot of popular music references, some obvious one, some slightly hidden. As usual. Writing the songs for a debut, 'For...  more
