New York Magazine reviews Flying Suit
Mon Apr 12, 07:32 PM
…in 1994, that is. Here’s what New York Magazine had to say about the original Flying Suit release:
“A hidden treasure that’s been roaming indie-rock byways from Brooklyn to San Francisco for years, the Mommyheads specialize in winsomely low-key, perfectly cut gems of avant-pop. There are keyboards but of the clunky, Modern Lovers variety; there are guitars but overlaid and cross-hatched with a baroque imagination worthy of XTC. The surreally poetic lyrics and quirky arrangements give way to gorgeous vocal harmonies and hooky, Beatlesque choruses that last and last. This record, like their last for the superhip label Simple Machines, is an embarrassment of riches, but the unfashionably clean production and note-perfect playing shows anything but embarrassment.”
Flying Suit hits the streets again in just five weeks. Exquisitely remastered by Fred Kevorkian (The White Stripes, Phish, Stuyvesant), the album features three bonus tracks that did not appear on the original.
To hear tracks from the remastered album, “friend us on Facebook::http://www.facebook.com/pages/Dromedary-Records/49187886217?ref=ts – we’ll be posting a few tasty treats over there as we get closer to the street date.
And for our friends in Scandinavia – brace yourselves for a Mommyheads spring tour!comments powered by Disqus
