Flossing – Switch

Photo: Kevin Condon

Don’t you just hate it when you name yourself after a dance trend only for it to suddenly disappear into a stream of new moves? Anyway, here’s Flossing showing that you don’t have to follow the rules to create something that’ll raise eyebrows around the world.

This is the solo project of Heather Elle of Bodega and The Wants fame, with her bass playing a key role in setting the unnerving mood of this new release. It’s a sparse output, helping to keep the focus on the words as you contemplate whether or not you too could easily be making the switch from bottom to top on a regular basis. It’s all murky and mysterious out here, like a street with questionable lighting, and yet there’s something so alluring about the risk of heading into the darkness.

Slow and steady wins the race, but slow and mischievous has far more fun along the way. More of this kind of thing, please.
