“Flesh World puts the “dream” back in ‘dream pop'” – Pitchfork

“an unkempt but very pretty” – FADER

“fuzzy post-punk that’s as indebted to hardcore as it is Siouxsie And The Banshees.”
A.V. Club

“Shoegaze of the Psychocandy and Loveless sort, along with dark post-punk, are the jumping off points for the band’s newest LP” – Noisey

Flesh World began with Scott Moore (Limp Wrist) and Jess Scott (Brilliant Colors), in a microscopic lofted-bedroom in San Francisco‘s Panhandle district. Scott and Jess merged their respective musical histories of hardcore and pop sort of on accident.  Actually without any mention of their previous bands, they bonded over the films of Kenneth Anger, the guitar work of Lou Reed and William Reid, the writing of Jean Genet, and the shirtless figures of David Hockney paintings. The pair slowly built songs in between hanging out at drag bars and punk shows, watching SF decay into some sort of inverted Detroit, isolated wealth which sent a lot of young artists running in the last couple of years. Flesh World is sort of what’s left of that, where the only places to have fun are still leather bars, house music clubs, basement punk shows.
