Have you heard of White Flight? Well, if not, you will. Their self-titled album is set to be properly released in December on Range Life Records (it's currently available via online retailers). White Flight is folky, it's dancey, it's creepy, and it's rather fantastic. The band is really Justin Roelofs from The Anniversary. His voice and sound is for fans of Devendra and Animal Collective. He puts a few audio samples and electronic drums in the middle of the mayhem of horns and campfire vocals to add to the perfect record for all your indie-Halloween needs. Honestly, this record really does sound like a brilliant take on Halloween.
The lead off track, "Now," sounds like a very catchy Animal Collective song (without drugs). This is a very focused track that sounds like it was created in one take. The structure of it and the vocals sound as if it were created under a fool moon in the desert. In fact, most of the songs sound like that. The titles make this picture even more realistic - "Pastora Divine," "Solasphere," "Obsidian," etc.
White Flight is the kind of record that will be embraced for its quirky genre-breaking style - part folk, part Odelay, part acid trip, part campfire sing along, and part alien orchestra. Roelofs voice sounds like a tame Devendra and anyone who is a fan of music that makes you want to howl at the moon will definitely love this album.
