Music Review: Flight of the Conchords

The other day, I got the song below randomly stuck in my head and then decided it would be a good idea to blog about them, simply because they’re ridiculous.

flight of the conchordsFlight of the Conchords is the almost award-winning fourth-most-popular folk duo in New Zealand. They used to be New Zealand’s fourth-most-popular guitar-based digi-bongo acapella-rap-funk-comedy folk duo, but they’ve made their way up (a smidge). They had programs on both HBO and BBC for a while several years ago, and have thrown around ideas such as a reunion tour and a movie.

I love these guys. I love how witty they are and how they make it seem so effortless. They’re singing songs about the annihilation of the entire human race and I’m still laughing about it. They have a real knack for taking things that shouldn’t really be funny, and making people laugh about them anyway. I think what they’re best at is presentation. Some (very lucky/talented) people can say almost anything and have it be funny. These guys are a great example.

It also doesn’t hurt their cause that I’m a huge fan of parody music and folk music. So here’s another video below and I hope you guys enjoy listening to them!
