Flaamingos - Flaamingos [LP]
Pounding analog drum machines. Rumbling basslines that are as moody as they are thoroughly danceable. Atmospheric washes of echo-laden synth textures. Jangling guitar sounds & choruses that resonate with emotion. Listening to Flaamingos' self-titled debut album, you'd be forgiven for thinking that it might come from the north of England, or somewhere else where the skies are consistently leaden & everybody always wears black. In fact, it's a bunch of (black-clad) Angelinos, & their sound includes traces of their past .
