StrangeJuice - Raising Cannibals

.
StrangeJuice sounds, well, strange. Vocalist Mike Anderson even comes off scary - especially during the ominous "Big Jim Smoke." The group is from Perth, Western Australia, which is not all that far from Nick Cave country. (Australian Cave can seem like a horror movie character, or a serial killer, at times). However, there's also humor running through this album's spooky sounding songs, too. Then again, Men At Work (probably known more for their wacky songs/videos, than ever doing anything that might cause nightmares) was also from Australia.

Something like "Put The Television On" is far different from "Big Jim Smoke." On it, Anderson - who handles all lead vocals - sings in a much higher register. The group's bio brags how StrangeJuice mixes "absurdist prose with conventional and unconventional musical instruments," an that's a perfectly apt description of this wonderfully weird album. It's more than just a rock & roll album; it's a sonic adventure.
