Thoughts: Flume, ‘Skin’


★★★½

Flume • Skin • Mom+Pop • Release: 5.27.16

The hype got me. After falling in love with single “Never Be Like You, I had to indulge in some SkinFlume‘s Skin…Yeah, that totally didn’t sound right.  Regardless, with some rare free time on my hands given a quiet July slate of releases, Skin has now been listened to by THE Brent Faulkner.  The results? Flume receives my approval.

Like any electronic album, sustaining the excitement can be tough. Still, Flume does it better than most others in 2016.  Additionally, there are more pieces to the pie than just hit single “Never Be Like You.” I mean c’mon, how many albums have a song titled “Wall F*ck”? Just saying!

Favorites from Skin included instrumental opener “Helix,” “Never Be Like You” (duh),  “Lose It” featuring Vic Mensa,  “Say It” featuring Tove Lo & “You Know” featuring Allan Kingdom & Raekwon.  If you want in depth thoughts on highlights and of course “Wall F*ck” (just rolls off the tongue), check out the link to the full review, published on The Musical Hype.
