Editorial Reviews

Herewith, Sub Pop's debut release from New Zealand's 4th most popular folk-comedy duo (and, yes, okay, also current HBO phenoms), Flight of the Conchords. The Distant Future EP includes Business Time, If You're Into It, and Not Crying, as well as live versions of The Most Beautiful Girl in the Room and Robots. Plus, there's live banter! We will be releasing a Flight of the Conchords full-length recording sometime in early 2008.

Flight of the Conchords is hands down the funniest show on TV this summer, but Bret and Jemaine are also known for their wickedly funny live shows. This little EP showcases both their in-studio and live performances and provides a nice little taste of the full album to come in early 2008. I can't wait!

How wonderful for Flight of the Conchords that they're finally getting the attention they deserve, and by HBO no less. Their laidback, quirky humor, mixed with definite musical skills, always makes me grin. I hope they acquire a HUGE fan following.

By the way, Business Time is by far my favorite song.

Flight Of The Conchords is one of the funniest concepts since Ricky Gervais unleashed The Office. Alot of people won't get it which is probably why HBO almost cancelled their show. Unfortunately, they can't match the scary success of Sex In The City. The genius of their comedy is woven into their songs with such clever skill that it takes several listens to catch all the subtle hilarious references. Eventually, FOC will get the attention they so justly deserve but probably not until sometime in the distant future...the year 2000.

Fellow robots or "robros" you need to get this!!!

This EP is great and I just can't get enough, I'm really looking forward to the full album. I became a fan of these guys back in 2005 when I first saw them on HBO and I am so glad that are now getting some real recognition.

Also amazon.co.uk has the "Complete BBC Radio Series" three CD set with a running time of three hours. Most of the material has been reused for the HBO show but it is all still very funny. You should check that out as well.

I'm glad these guys finally came out with a CD that's easy to get in the States. The studio tracks sound great, but the live stuff is what gets 5 stars from me. This EP provides a nice selection of different styles, and even a little bantering. The only way to improve this is to add more tracks, but it's a wonderful teaser until the full-length CD comes out next year.

When FOTC's show first came out, I was instantly sold. I ordered this EP and their 'Folk The World Tour' (live album) from SmokeCDs. Both of these albums have their own unique edge. This one (Distant Future) will whet your appetite for FOTC Season 2 (WTF?) and remind you why you enjoy their show so much.

While I wish either this or the 'Folk The World Tour' album contained the studio/show tracks (i.e. for songs like BOOM!, Robots, etc.), these are still pretty good--especially for a (mostly) live album. You can also get free mp3s off their site--google 'em and you'll find a few not on either album.

With the live show recordings, there's a great freshness to their banter that illustrates just how talented these guys really are (esp. on the fly). Buy this...and don't forget to check out their 'Folk The World Tour' album, too!

Bret and Jemaine really know how to make us laugh. Each of their songs are so funny and unique. Whether it's making a song about David Bowie's ever changing alter egos, when they flow as HipHopapotamus and the Rhymenocerous (their rapping names) or talking about how tough the world is because people have knives and forks in their legs (and getting diseases from monkeys). There is never a dull moment with them because you really don't know what to expect next. Just when you think you have them all figured out, they bust out a song about gettin freaky on Wednesday because it's "Business Time". Bottom line, they rock.
