The gist Oli Heffernan makes some snazzy music and gets his heroes/mates to sing on it The music It seems to be the time of year for long-distance albums. I recently wrote about Flamingods' pretty good Hyperborea, and this is another glorious Frankenstein's Monster of a record. Black Floral comes 3 years after Heffernan's first album under the Detective Instinct moniker. The History of Headaches/American Novels was one of my favourite albums of 2011 (and I'd urge anyone with an ounce of musical taste to seek it out. Clue - it's here) and Black Floral takes that model and runs with it.
