Last weekend, moody analogue dance dudes Silk Flowers played at the awesome Sculpture Center in Queens (in conjunction with the University of Trash). It was satisfyingly cognitively dissonant watching them perform such dark and rackety tracks outside under the hot sun to a crowd of beer-drinking satisfieds chilling in giant hammocks and standing on rocks spraypainted the blinding neon of tennis balls. Silk Flowers are not super depressed or anything, though, just extra creative and cool, as we discovered when we linked up with them before their show and talked to them about meat, elf kings and making their their new album in a sealed chamber in the middle of winter.
