The Bowls Project
"Death Is A Job"a hit record for a new millenniumis the highlight for this listener, a story of crossing an intersection to avoid a sniper's bullet and running into a war photographer, a tale told with doo-wop vocals backed by a beatbox, a tight rhythm full of glorious girl group energy.
If it all sounds like a weighty listengrenades and blood washed away by rain, bullets flyingthe disc can enjoyed on musical terms alone. Moments like the cello/bass interplay behind the vocals on "Zenica Blues" are heaven, as are the vocal harmonies throughout, along with the pure feminine energy of it all.
An informed source tells me Charming Hostess is quite something in a live setting. They're quite something on disc, too.
