JFH Indie Inspection Review



Flight Metaphor
Trapdoors & Ladders

Street Date: 2008
Style: Indie Rock
Artist Website: Mypace.com


Flight Metaphor is a four member band hailing from Omaha, Nebraska. I struggled with this record from the start, as the production here is decidedly low-budget. On the Indie side of things, that can be overlooked if you have everything else in place. No such luck here. The record is loaded with many of the usual cliches (can we retire the line "All I want to do is live this life for you" please?). The band's musical influences must be a who's who of mid-90's Alt-Pop, as the entire record has a feeling of being a decade too late. Then out of nowhere... track 12, entitled "I-29" grabs my attention. It sounds like something out of a Wes Anderson film: upbeat, retro-indie-hip, a departure from the rest of the record. That alone gives me hope for their next effort.
