Selective Hearing (WTII Records)
release date: 2/26/2013
by Scott Hefflon
13 years in, Mechanical Cabaret finally get a North American release, courtesy of the trustworthy WTII label. Selective Hearing is a greatest hits record, and therefore a great introduction. The words dour and deadpan pop up in numerous reviews, as they should. "See Her Smile" is dark underbelly examination over anthemic synths and mid-tempo pulse. No newsreel samples or manic poundings or distorted roar. A classy, heartfelt single.
This is not a review, really, just a lil preview blurb. See more previews here.
