The best novelty band coming out of New Zealand, ever. The Bret & Jermaine won my heart after our favorite couple had shown me a few DVR’d episodes, and I wound up with The Flight Of The Conchords first season on DVD (we don’t have HBO). Their album came/leaked out (not sure which), and eventhough it’s basically a soundtrack for the show, the songs flow surprisingly well! I was laughing my ass off at work listening to this today, as well as smiling at the episodes as certain bits reminded me of them… A wonderful way to keep it all in check. Yeah, it’s novelty, but they are perfectly thought out and crafted. Whether it be a saucy vintage French number, robots taking over the world, songs about getting it on on a work night with your wife in a dirty ol’ t-shirt, each song takes the right genre, the right attitude, exaggerates it just enough but not too much.
Yeah, this is staying on my player for a while… I think I’m going to need it from time to time.
