The Pussywarmers- The Chronicles of the Pussywarmers
Some things get listened to, and then reviewed, simply because of what it's called. This is on Voodoo Rhythm and is as sleazy as you'd expect. Yeah, it's sleazy, but so is Prince at times. What does it sound like? This is some decent new weird America from Switzerland. "Send Me Some" plays like a jug band fronted by Hedwig & The Angry Inch. "Chanson d'amour" reminds me of Jacques Dutronc. "21 marzo" sounds like a Satanic funeral song from a Spaghetti Western. Then some doozies close it out, where they sound like the worst of World Inferno Friendship Society or The Dresden Dolls and all the bad goth make up that brings to mind. What amazes me more than anything, though, is how above average the good songs are. This could've been super lame. Seriously, when doing this type of music it's hard to not sound like some middle age dude's hobby. Thankfully there is nothing too steampunk about this.
