Sampler 2 of 2 from In Flagranti's new album. Predictably jacked to the brim full of their signature no-gristle, no-glory aesthetic.
Succeeding 2006’s Wronger Than Anyone Else and 2009’s Brash & Vulgar, In Flagranti’s Sasa Crnobrnja and Alex Gloor have left behind their vintage porn-chic sensibilities and instead turn to yesterday’s trashed goods for inspiration.
“Flea markets and recycling parts of our production are really at the center of this album,” said the now London-based Crnobrnja. “I like things to be old and run-down,” added Alex Gloor, who still resides in Basel. “So I let myself be inspired by one of my favorite places to spend time: 1970s- 80s New York City.”
“Hallow Discourses” swaggers in on a gritty bassline, revealing excess in its degenerative electro finest, and “The End of the Road” leave a bit of the sleaze at the massage parlour door, opening up a new chapter of sound for the band. More outer space dump diving than straight-up vulgar.
