Flying - Just-One-Second-Ago Broken Eggshell (Mill Pond)



With the whole free-folk explosion in full swing, I'm always confused when I discover genuinely original indie folk going completely unnoticed. As was the case with the guys of Akron/Family, Brooklyn-based collective Flying has slipped almost entirely under the hipster radar. The four-piece's debut album was just released on Mill Pond Records, and boy is it a party. Unlike other bearded boys like Animal Collective and Devendra Banhart, Flying find themselves more based in pop song structure and strongly influenced by South American/European psychedelia (read: Os Mutantes, Brigitte Fontaine). And a lot of times I find it refreshing to hear female vocals at least once in a genre. Yeah.

Flying: Last Trick

Go to New York and see this:

And, hey, while you're in New York, buy me a shirt.
