I Stand Corrected - Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue
Today we have our first song of 2018 for the Daily Song Drop, with the early single release off of the upcoming, self-titled EP by Brooklyn's Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue (a project from Eric "Doc" Mendelsohn of Ghost Beach) called "I Stand Corrected".
Check out the track below:
I really like how "I Stand Corrected" feels like the artist has taken little bit from a bunch of different, retro tracks, and melted them all together into a funky soul/R&B track: at times the song feels like it's time machined out of the early 1970s, but then Pink Flamingo Rhythm Revue (PFRR) spins just a little bit of a modern indie vibe, before letting the track slip back into a funky, bass-heavy R&B. The best thing about "I Stand Corrected" is it provides a brilliant, retro-groove to get you moving along to, but never lapses into feeling like it's tired: PFRR has perfectly layered the track to feel both modern, and familiar, sultry, and a bit tongue-in-cheek, all in a package unlike anything else we have talked about here on the Daily Song Drop (or anything coming out of the indie scene today).
Plus, long-time readers know that I am a sucker for well-produced, fresh, retro-inspired tracks.
If you dig "I Stand Corrected" be sure to check out the other pre-released single "On A Night Like This", and be sure to keep an eye out in 2018 for the release of the full EP.
Here is the November Apple Music Playlist, and the November Spotify Playlist! I'm pretty happy with the flow on this one (and it was, for a change, a bit easier to put together thanks to how the tracks fit together). I also feel like this playlist has just the right amount of variation in it to make it awesome for any and all holiday travelling that you may have coming up...

See you tomorrow for our next Daily Song Drop!
