Flight Of The Conchords - Flight Of The Conchords (Cassette)
Flight of the Conchords followed the release of their six-track Grammy Award-nominated Grammy Award-winning (it's true!) CDEP The Distant Future with this, their full-length record album debut. Produced by Mickey Petralia (Beck Midnight Vultures, Ladytron Light & Magic) in Los Angeles, New York and Wellington, the album features fully fleshed-out and professionally recorded versions of Flight of the Conchords concert and television favorites.
The songs are heard here in expanded but reverent arrangements. Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement's trademark acoustic guitars lead the blitz, backed by a diverse array of instrumentation and production technique. And, the album sounds legitimate and musically, it's incredible, but, as Shakespeare said, ''Does it funny?'' Happily, yes. If amazing, delightful and hilarious is your idea of funny, then prepare for undisappointment!
These 15 songs pay homage to Pet Shop Boys, censorship, Marvin Gaye, sexism, Shabba Ranks, and backhanded compliments. To be blunt, if you can't find a rire ou sourire in the FSL study guide of opening track, ''Foux du Fafa,'' then, please notice, vous etes malade. Flight of the Conchords has sold 374K copies as of December, 2018. It has never before been available on cassette.
