Vol. 1 Review on Mishka Blogin

"And it’s an easy monster to love—the beast with a heart of gold, you know, Frankenstein and the flower—provided you’ve got a taste for the stage-lit macabre. Everything about Vol. 1 is eerily emphatic: the gypsy trance of “Nile Style” and “Speaking in Tongues” circus organ, a hulking near-Italo bass on “Alone Again”. And Corina Bakker’s voice, that swirling, trilling, growling ghoul of a thing, projecting to the back row even in a whisper; hers is a voice that shatters rooms, sends villagers running. But it’s all so warm and embraceable, those disco lilts and slinky guitars, that you’re utterly compelled to go down the rabbit hole with them. To dance and move and hulk right alongside that gilt-hearted monster, because The Tempers, they may be eating pop music alive—but they’re spitting it back at you with an other-world sheen. Ungodly good stuff." Read more

In the case of this family trio, The Tempers rely heavily on drum machines and corpse paint...read more

I’ve got no clue how well this weirdo triangle music is going to go down in the New Year, or what it’s going to be called (“jizz-bop” or “watery fag trance” are my suggestions), but I can’t help but think that greasy-bearded art-student types will appreciate it for their disquieting loft-bed mating sessions every bit as much as I will appreciate it for editing my Castlevania speed runs on YouTube.

Buzzlegoose Album Review!

Check out the first review of Vol. 1, even if you've never been to a "dance party" or listened to "rock & roll" you may still be strangely attracted to our sound!


...This band, undeniably, has talent, and plenty of it. The melodies from the keyboard are interesting and have enough variety from song to song to keep you entertained; the drums hold a steady, consistent beat that force your head up and down in an eerie kind of daze; the guitar and bass spice things up enough to liven the mood without becoming too overbearing; the bizarre interstellar noises in the background send your head spinning...read more

Oh and if your reading, Chris Barlow, thanks for the review!
