Flex TMG - Whisper Swish 12"
The debut record from Bay Area mutant disco duo Flex TMG — get into the groove, dance to destroy.
"Whether they intended it or not, Flex The Music Group is an extraordinarily apt moniker for this project, in which Fake Fruit’s Hannah D’Amato and Blues Lawyer’s Rob I. Miller exercise different musical muscles without losing a speck of the charisma they infuse into their other groups. They promise “leftfield disco,” and that’s exactly what Whisper Swish delivers. D’Amato and Miller sing tongue-twisting lyrics over fuzzed-out bass and the occasional flanging guitar melody that somehow never get lost amid the booty-shaking synthesizer beats (this is the flex we’re talking about). Whisper Swish taps into what ESG, Deee-Lite, Maximum Joy, and Blondie once handed to disco and punk clubs alike, but with an attitude all Flex TMG’s own. On the penultimate track, “Quiero Que Sepas” (“I Want You To Know”), D’Amato sings about “something you can latch onto.” But she need not worry — you’re already hooked." (Erin O'Hare)
