Flunk Democracy: Personal Stereo Versions

  • Words: Scott Thill
  • Label: Beatservice
  • XLR8R Rating: 6/10

Norway's folktronic outfit Flunk usually keeps its proceedings chilled, but this open-sourced remix effort ups the bpms more than a bit. Slicing and dicing "Diet of Water and Love," "If We Kiss," and the title track from their 2007 effort Personal Stereo, Democracy finds First Man on Mars and Penny and Ashtray's frenetic space-scapes sliding nicely up to the broken jazz of Allicorn Smokey Den with little resistance. Three songs does not usually a good compilation make, but in the case of the diverse approaches from Flunk's fans and followers, the copy is actually a sonic improvement on the original.
