Flaps The Flaps

The Flaps are an instrumental group of musicians who keenly know how to cross various genres to create an entertaining album. From upbeat surf numbers to weird haunted house dirges and melancholy mariachi tunes, the Ottawa band have assembled a solid assortment of songs on their debut. Recorded by Dave Draves and mastered by Andy Magoffin, the disc conveys a rich depth that draws out the group’s solid musicianship. Throughout their first album, the Flaps offer a consistently compelling instrumental style. (Kelp)
