It’s ears to the ground as ¡FLIST! trickles out more goodies over the next couple of months. Fuck You Im Dead is slated for a November 11th release on cassette, digi, and as a limited silk-screened print, right here, through Art Not Love.
Written over an eight year period, Fuck You Im Dead is ¡FLIST!’s debut effort. The album pulls from a plethora of influences, from Carl Perkins’ wailing croons, Marc Almond’s torch songs, to contemporary mainstays like Busta Rhymes, and Pharoahe Monch. The result is a series of dense, ad hoc collages; odes to the human condition skirting sanity’s peaks, and some of the most neglected reaches of the soul.
Rhythms shake and shuffle around plodding bass and carnivalesque melodies. A lonely voice rises out through the frenzy, gnashing teeth and grinding gums, delivering every word as if it’s their last.
For those who can’t wait, there is an IndieGogo campaign set up as a fund raiser and pre-order service for the album that includes some special edition content that won’t be available elsewhere. More details on that and the November release in the coming weeks.
