Plastic Flowers- Strange Neighbors 7''

When asked in a recent interview why he moved from Tallahassee to New York, Sean Earl Beard of Plastic Flowers replied, "My choice was to get comfortable or get out. And I can never get comfortable." Bittersweet melodies of alienation, the charms of romantic detachment, the possibility of coloring one's less-than ideal surroundings with sounds that dramatize and enhance what might be otherwise too drab to take -- these are the raison d'etre of Plastic Flowers. Beard's story is in some ways fairly classic--small town boy from an unstable home leaves it all behind to come make music in the big city. But familiar farmboy rock and roll imagery dissolves as the picture of a former punk kid from sunny Florida transplanted to overcast Brooklyn making clever yet heartfelt electronic pop comes into focus. The Strange Neighbors 7" includes three tracks that appropriately showcase Beard's knack for song craft--the title track, "Strange Neighbors" and "She Learned the Best Way"--as well has his talent for facilitating escapism through lush melodic compositions like the instrumental "Serious Pleasures", which begs to invade the headphones of a lonely dreamers' walk home on an Autumn night after parting ways with an unrequited crush. The digital version of the 7" comes with an alternate b-side bonus track.
