Death Sentence: Panda!. - Insects awake [Upset The Rythem - 2008]

Insects awake is a deranged and manic collusion of female screamed Ďní ranted hard core punk, sped up and lo-fi jazz runs, abused and amped up easy listening and general chaos- but itís all made with out a guitar in sight with the three piece just using  a mix of flute, saxophone, xylophone, clarinet, piano, trombone, bells/ gongs and effects.

Most of the time the album is going for the throat with bounding and distorted horn work, yelled and ranted female vocals, crashing and smashing drum work often lined with xylophone atmospherics. Through thatís not to say there are not a few more tuneful and atmospheric edgerís popping up here and there- itís just they donít hang around for long as their grabbed by the throat and or forced into the mayhem. I cant recall horns sounding this nasty, sneering, aggressive and ugly- I guess the closet would be if you imaged early Residents album been taken over by a  female fronted acid Ďní speed twisted punk band then you might just get Death Sentence: Panda!.

Really an sonic experience all of itís own, Insects awake forces 14 shots of jabbering horn mayhem, deranged female vocals, bounding drums in to just over 40 minutes. Leaving you when itís finished with your brain spinning and your limbs in a tangle.
