10 x 4 – Flowers and Sea Creatures

10 x 4 - Flowers and Sea Creatures Flowers and Sea Creatures is the shared nom de plume of Graham Baxter and Kosta Megalos, two Europeans who are now based in Montreal. After hooking up with Ben Watt and his legendary house label Buzzin’ Fly, they released their self titled debut album earlier this year. Opaque and narcotically psychedelic, the album straddles the fertile middle ground between house, folk and Balearic. We caught up with the duo so they could field our 10 x 4 questions.
