These Bubbles Come from Ants (download only) 2010


Please Choose:

"These Bubbles come from Ants" is Hellblinki's fourth full length album, and the first to be released on vinyl as well as CD.

"Mix it up into a pot/some black and gorgeous master plot," Hellblinki's master of ceremonies Andrew Benjamin sings over jaunty horns and barbed guitar lines on "Bubbles," the opening track from the band's fourth full-length. The lyric works as a thesis, too, for this Asheville-based outfit's darkly comic music, conjured out of bits of Weimar Republic cabaret, Italian operetta, infernal Slavic folk waltzes and psycho swamp blues. Benjamin's "fiends" and "zombie kings" flirt with madness and chaos, drawn to the flames of power, lust and lechery or perhaps driven there by the songs, where singing saws shadow operatic vocals, Jew's harp and tuba do a dance macabre, and mariachi horns mingle with Middle Eastern melodies... - John Schacht
