Back in October, we debuted a track from the new Karabas Barabas album. That album, Sex with the Devil, is out tomorrow! You can order it on iTunes tonight and get it at midnight. You don’t have to buy it, I guess; but, being that Satan has commanded you to do so, should you risk it? I wouldn’t.
Featuring the tribute to the late great John Dunsworth (“Lahey”), the track we premiered here (“50/50”), and 8 other incredible tracks.
Two of the other tracks from the album premiered in October, along with “50/50”. One is “That 70’s Song” and the other is the explicitly and aptly named “Fuckarana”. These tracks, along with the aforementioned, represent a good taste of what the album is about.
As much as these songs are all fantastic, the standout tracks for me at “You Can’t Do That” and the closing track, “Jacques Lemaire” – with the latter being named after a legendary hockey player and boasting some of the most interesting songwriting on the album. While this review has highlighted 6 of the 10 songs already, it’s fair to call the album strong from start to finish – something the band had already proven the ability to do on their debut, as well as with their kindie project, Rolie Polie Guacamole.
