There is nothing to not like about THE FLUTE FLIES debut album Yes Means Maybe.
It's gloriously hooky and poppy. Kinda gauzy, kinda soft, it's a lot of all the stuff you like. Ivan Howard of the Rosebuds, Zeno Gill of Pox and Reid Johnson of Schooner deliver a fine, fine recording.
It's perfect for this fall weather that suddenly appeared. Tracks like Shopping Mall with it's bounce-around build up dancing beat and sing along anthem, or We Went Alone which will try and drum you into submission, are made for windows-down golden sunset drives to nowhere. Some of the tracks are Rosebuds-esque, but who is going to complain about that? Not me.
It's for an EXCELLENT cause. The band lost a good friend to brain cancer and all proceeds from sales of Yes Means Maybe go to CyTunes, which goes to fund brain cancer research at Duke University. CyTunes also a good place to check out other artists, too. It's a pay what you want so make that happen. No reason not to get this album. Do it now.
