Here’s the conundrum.  What if your band loves Joy Division AND New Order equally?  Not to worry, Flaamingos.  Interpol made it out alright,  The Horrors managed, White Lies and many more have found their place in the post-Ian Curtis catalogue.  There will always be a need for low-octave vocalists crooning over crunchy bass riffs and sweeping synths.

Flaamingos are part of Felte Sounds, which is owned by Jeff Owens, also a manager of Ghostly International.  Felte and Ghostly Int’l share a love of dark, atmospheric albums in the ambient and electronic genres, but occasionally pick up bands with more rock roots.  Flaamingos is one of the rockier groups Felte has signed, and that’s a good thing.  They encompass all of those elements I love from 1980s post-punk, but also embrace the modern electronic aesthetic.

The track below sounds uncannily like a lost Joy Division b-side.  If you follow the buy-it link, you can hear an additional song from the album.
