Reviewed 2007-12-02
Disturbed, DIY art-goth pastiche. Think Leonard Cohen, Death In June, and you probably know more names than me. FCC clean. Picks - 5,2,3,6,10,12,

1- Seems to be blank!
*2-4:30) Dark, heavily distorted looped gamelan. Cello. Bluesy, jaded vocals. Nightmarish.
*3-4:03) Mid-fast. Cabaret piano/Silent film "trouble on the tracks". 80s industrial style vox. Surf guitar strums and hammer dulcimer?
4-3:32) Dark electro-Kraut. Druggy vocals.
**5-2:55) Slow. Dark, echoey, spoken word about a dead clown. Electronic backing and toy piano.
*6-2:03) Fast strummed processed acoustic guitar. Western feel.
7-3:13) Mid. Electro. Campy version of Bei Mir Bist du Schon.
8-3:12) Slow maudlin 6/8 with cello, guitar and chimes.
9-2:51) Talking over calliope/organ.
*10-4:46) Plain folk guitar and voice. Beat fleshes out. Fem vox. floats on top. Sad, depressed feel.
11-3:43) Organ. Muffled beat. In Spanish.
*12-2:33) Old recording of marching band. Strange percussion, cello, and vox. Idiosyncratic. Last sec. quiet.
13-4:47) Weirdness in the beginning. Strange nightmarish sludgy backing.
14-7:01) Mid. fast. Strummed guitar and simple diriving perc.
15-7:22) Trippy. Ukelele, cello. At -5:20 harsh electronics and a weird medley of previous songs. Ends with live raucaus elec. guitar and vox.
