Fasman’s Finds – Chronic Mncher

Fasman’s Finds is our column from Rebecca Fasman (intrepid record nerd, DJ, and curator at the Kinsey Institute) in which she shares what she’s listening to and why. 

I have fully accepted that I love sludgey things. I love sludgey metal, sludgey hip hop, sludgey electro, sludgey funk, give me anything that is grimey and I want to live in it and rub it on my face. This week’s song is no exception. The track “Flutez” by Chronic Mncher starts off super clean, almost dreamy, and pretty quickly moves into a dirty atmospheric world of sexy French people at an auto-shop (at least this is where my head went, LISTEN TO THE SONG and you’ll see what I mean, it’s cinematic!). 

Sexy French car mechanics fantasies aside, I really like this whole EP. I mean this in the best possible way – this EP sounds like if Air, T. Raumschmiere, and Gorillaz had a baby with great taste, and we all know discerning babies are the best babies. I found myself turning it on over and over again and it always was an energizing, focusing listen.
