CD Review: Flight of the Conchords

Flight of the Conchords

I Told You I Was Freaky

Sub Pop

Rating: 5

“[There’s] too many dicks on the dance floor.” Yes, this is the kind of profound lyrical content New Zealand a cappella/rap/funk/electro-pop/folk comedy duo Bret McKenzie and Jemaine Clement sing about.

As the second full-length album based off of the band’s hit self-titled HBO series, I Told You I Was Freaky sums up the silly and self-deprecating humor of the show.

The band explores all musical genres from reggae to techno, and then adds a comedic twist to them. What to expect? Witty parodies of mainstream music today – most blatant being R&B flavored “We’re Both in Love with a Sexy Lady” that rip-offs Usher’s ft. R. Kelly’s “Same Girl.”

They may look like your typical bearded hipsters in plaid, but don’t overlook the talents this dynamic duo offer. They will make you LOL.

Give these tracks a listen: “Sugalumps,” “Hurt Feelings”

For Fans Of: David Bowie, The Lonely Island
