It is difficult to believe we are already a third of the way through the year – but I know that to be the case as it is time for the Reader’s Choice for Bands of the Month for April.

Based in USA with a soundtrack of world-dance – there is something appropriate about Mosquito Cabaret being the selection in this current time of geo-political turmoil – at least music can unify.

Lament of the Lonely Bloodsucker is available on bandcamp.

With only one collection of songs to hear contained within the EP –  Lament of the Lonely Bloodsucker (available on bandcamp) there is much to enjoy in the four track, dozen minutes or thereabouts, release. Each song takes the listener to a different country for a traditional dance sound that finds the listener joyfully clapping hands and stomping feet, whilst the dark lyrical content contemplates of narrative of less sprightly mood, resultingly the audience is left with tears of sadness dripping from the cheeks whilst the eyes simultaneously sparkle in pleasure.

By way of an introduction – the second track Lost In A Maze – which directly references the mythology of Mr Sandman, who sparkles good dreams on those sleeping, whilst the lyric tells of brooding thoughts; highlighting the essential juxtapositions of Mosquito Cabaret and what makes them such a pleasure.

Within the past few hours the opening composition of the eleven –  Blitz – was made available in advance of the album.

Having had the opportunity to listen to the full release, I am able to attest Never Finished, Only Abandoned is an album to add to the collection on availability. An eleven track, just under three quarters of an hour LP which excavates its own sheltering bunkers under the listeners feet. A well put together release which has story-like flow to the collection of songs, that weave between dark apocalypse and moments of fleeting hopefulness and in many ways minds of the Jeff Wayne musical version of War Of The Worlds.

Blitz is the perfect scenario opening chapter for what follows and also my pick of the release – from its opening siren through to its closing burning wood – as the just under four and a half minute track shrouds the room in plaster wrecking drill-bits of electronics and wall collapsing bass loops.
