No one listens to The Bastard Fairies because they want to hear an average band making subpar music. They listen to The Bastard Fairies because they want to hear something unexpected and unique.
Memento Mori is an album that not only brings unexpected and unique instrumentation to the table, but it also provides some creative and controversial lyrics. You'll know what we're talking about once you hear "We're All Going To Hell", it's definitely original ;)
So with that said, let's look at a song or two as we Unhinge...The Bastard Fairies.
It's not often that you get groups making music about mental illness without trying to sugarcoat the subject matter. When you listen to Habitual Inmate, you get an inside look at what a day of chronic OCD might be like. Now of course there's more to it than that, but this is a bold move that quickly differentiates The Bastard Fairies from popular song culture.
As a voice for music lovers across the world, we feel that most listeners want groups to say things they haven't yet formulated or even have the gall to say. The Bastard Fairies makes it a point to express their opinions without concern of being shunned by uptight audiences.
Ode To The Prostitue
This principle within their creative process is most obvious and pronounced in the lyrics and video of "We're All Going To Hell". When you first hear it, it will knock you back a few pegs, but after you hear a few more of their songs you see their direction.
We know you're curious about what this song we've been talking about could actually say, but you'll see it in a minute.
For now we'll talk about this one up above called Ode to the Prostitute for a minute. Just look at that title, "Ode To The Prostitute", who makes songs like that? It's not like no one's ever heard of prostitution, but how many artists are bold enough to sing about it?
It's wild stuff indeed, but that's that edge we like to hear at Unhinged Reviews. It doesn't matter if it's rap or rock, we want to hear it. What about you? What kind of music do you like?
And Now..."We're All Going To Hell"
We're not going to say much about this song because we've said enough already and you need to have you're own unbiased experience.
The way we see it, you're either going to be totally thrown for a loop or you can handle that uncut indie spirit.

And for those that are still curious about the artists behind the sound. The group is comprised of two main totems. The most vocal and pronounced member of the group is the angel-faced Yellow Thunder Woman that's featured on the cover. The second player in The Bastard Fairies is Robin Davey who is responsible for the bulk of the sound structure.
