Diablo Swing Orchestra - Pandora's Piñata
Really great, really interesting and utterly unique Swedish metal-and-far-beyond group who combine Louis Jordan jump-jive with female vocals ala the Andrew Sisters and male vocals ala Sleepytime Gorilla Museum plus metal guitars. Yowzah - what a crazy idea and it really WORKS. This is their 3rd and probably their best yet.
"The music of Sweden’s Diablo Swing Orchestra is unlike any other group on the planet. Their music is an eclectic mash up of metal, opera, swing jazz, tango, and spaghetti western soundtrack. DSO is fronted by the glass shattering voice of Annelouice Wolgers, a metal queen at night but an actual opera singer by day. The band’s third album, Pandora’s Pinata, finds the band expanded into an 8 piece lineup with the permanent addition of two horn players. The new album is a smörgåsbord of different levels of musical insanity building on the foundation laid down on their previous album, Sing Along Songs For The Damned And Delerious."
