Listen up Factory fans, there’s a new self-titled record by Los Angeles’ Flaamingos that may be right up your alley. I have no doubt this record will surprise a good number of listeners this year, as one of the best they’ve yet to hear. Flaamingos are Daniel Koontz and Jerry Narrows, and their sound isn’t quite as bleak as Joy Division, but there are touchstones of Manchester’s boys, and a few other bands — the low-key hush of current New York band Jeane, the edge of early 80’s short-lived Josef K, the bleeding honesty of The Stockholm Monsters (circa “Decalogue”), and Orange Juice. Songs like “Walk A Wire”, “Fall With Me”, “Digital Dialogue” and “Fin Du Monde” are majestic. The songs have subtle pop hooks, lots of guitar reverb overlay, passionate but quietly delivered lead vocals, and a sort of muted, DIY beauty. You can follow Flaamingos on facebook, twitter, and bandcamp. — David D. Robbins Jr.
