Flanger: Midnight Sound

The pair of beatheads who comprise Flanger are too damn mellow for their own good. Filled with Atom Heart’s dainty keyboard musings and Burnt Friedman’s Brazilian rhythms, Midnight Sound floats away on a near anesthetic haze-you could go under the surgeon’s knife while listening to this disc and not know it. Though there are nice moments here, it’s telling that the most interesting tune on this disc is a cliche: an “acid jazzy” take on “So What.”
