♫♪  Maoupa Mazzocchetti - “Fonk Left The Ytown”

Been a minute since someone redefined outsider pop. And typically, it’s “redefined” in a super dark way, suggesting that this is how they style of underground weirdos can express theyselves. And-and only in the style of “dark.” Or heavy. Gem Jones was a close zinger to finding a semblance of happiness. Yet, the expectation is always something more secretive and “underground.” A notion that harshness needs to be explored more than being freaky. And-and-and freaky isn’t necessarily something to feel ashamed of, eXpecially for the listeners (who are equally as freaky and funky and full of hope.

…Which is why it’s such a delight that Editions Gravats pumped up Maoupa Mazzocchetti from the puddle he physically once was (check the album cover for more details. Maoupa Mazzocchetti is playful and damn-near everywhere, but keeping it together in the name of fun. So what if “Fonk Left The Ytown,” ya boy Maoupa Mazzocchetti bout to piece it all together. Thus, it’s safe to say the new Editions Gravats release of Gag Flag is more like jig-saw puzzle club that will find itself atop a high-rise smoking spliffs in the wind, or huffing basement fumes of some warehouse on the bring of the city.
