Mad props to Flume. It's 2012 and it is reassuring to know at least someone is still making original music.

Hi I'm from the future....

I was among early proponents of synths blazing a new path in indie music (2005ish) but, it's epidemic at this point. I miss indie rock and folk ... 😔

Flume still good (and *creative*) in 2022 though 👍

Flaare

Flume has his own genre. Every track is a masterpiece.
