A rather interesting band i stumbled across.

So I sell music instruments as my job and occasionally teach drumming so I tend to come across all sorts of musical styles and cd's that people bring me to listen to.

Well just the other day a co-worker of mine introduced me to a group I find rather interesting and I figured I'd pass the word around. These are not personal friends or anything. Just a really interesting sound and I'm sharing my love of music by passing the info on.

Ladies and gents please give a listen to Diablo Swing Orchestra.

I was instantly hooked by the sound and music mix they put together. Not sure how long they have been around or who has heard of them but I always love to share interesting bands.

Enjoy!

I really enjoyed it! Atleast the first three tracks.
The arrangement of so different instruments, sounds and voices makes my hypothalamus produce vast amounts of oxytocin.

Just bought the album, $10 is a damn good price.

Unfortunately, I can't really read their website.

But I just listened to Balrog Boogie on YouTube. Definitely interesting with the swing band mixed with a rock band, mixed with a classically trained singer.

oh, album's only $9 on the Amazon mp3 site.


/edit: apparently their second album is coming out Monday.

Yeah I'm looking forward to the new one as well. Gotta love a CD titled Sing-along Songs for the Damned and Delirious. My wife just looks at me funny every time I play one of their songs hehe.

Their sounds reminds of a photo someone sent me of a potato chip snack you could buy someone in England.

Chocolate & Chilli Flavoured.

The comment she made about that they were nice but a real mind f****.

I kinda like it sort of ... wonder if they have it on itunes
