about

The follow-up to the breakthrough Happy Madness, Hey Hey Cabaret continues the dynamic steampunk duo's shift into a touring troupe that uses the recording studio to bring out its best. Guitarist Scott Helland (who was a member of the legendary `80s punk group Deep Wound with Dinosaur Jr.'s J Mascis and Lou Barlow and Outpatients) particularly beefs up his sound. His acoustic power chords provide a punkish energy to tracks like "Silent Movie," "Steampunk Pixie," and "I'm Free." Vocalist Samantha Stephenson sings in a variety of voices that tease, sympathize, and mock the unusual circumstances the songs dictate. She writes with an eye and ear for humor, ensuing the songs' narratives never tire. "Confession of Jack Bonnie and Sally Clyde" dances on the head of a pin and "Birthday Fanfare," "Hey Hey Cabaret," and "Lunar Frenzy" kicks up the duo's manic side.
