5.0 out of 5 stars 24-carat serendipitous discovery
I chanced upon this CD in one of those occasional compulsive trawls for a great new discovery which so often end up with thwarted hopes and missed targets .... not this time. This little gem has been on heavy rotation ever since I got it home.
The dreamy title and hazy, almost mid-west, small-town feel of the cover artwork lull you into an appetite for a trip that's...

3.0 out of 5 stars Slow, but it got there
It took ALOT longer to receive this item, even though it was much more expensive than two other Flunk CD's I ordered on the very same day, but from other suppliers.

5.0 out of 5 stars 24-carat serendipitous discovery, 11 Sep 2002
This review is from: For sleepyheads only (Audio CD)
I chanced upon this CD in one of those occasional compulsive trawls for a great new discovery which so often end up with thwarted hopes and missed targets .... not this time. This little gem has been on heavy rotation ever since I got it home.
The dreamy title and hazy, almost mid-west, small-town feel of the cover artwork lull you into an appetite for a trip that's soft and ethereal, and song titles like 'kebab shop 3am' let you know you're in for something a bit quirky and offbeat.
Flunk, it turns out, are Norwegian - though you wouldn't necessarily guess it from the music, which encompasses a sophisticated range of references and moods .... from the charming acoustic version of Blue Monday, featuring a very Bjork-like Tine Skarland, to the downtempo light house grooves of Miss World or Sugar Planet, which wouldn't be out of place next to LTJ Bukem's 'Producer'-era output, or even Moby's 'Porcelain'. Elsewhere, the consistent priority of pleasing floaty tunes over any driving lyrical direction reminds of early Babybird. Mazzy Star and Portishead are other comparisons I might make, though none of these quite harnesses what's so charming about 'for sleepyheads only'. The words do eventually worm their way into your consciousness, and are entertaining odd and unexpected, but it's the music which grabs you first and enduringly.
It's definitely one for those of us who recognise that need, despite all odds, to go out and discover something we've never heard of .... and the huge pleasure when you do find a nugget of something totally unexpected. If you get really excited by music which is quite difficult to pin down and fancy taking a chance on something a bit more leftfield, give this one a try, and maybe you'll be basking too.
