Death is Not a Joyride
Death is Not a JoyrideThe Human Zoo
Proceed with caution when encountering this menagerie. Helmed by the Paper Chase's John Congleton, Death Is Not a Joyride's debut magnifies the Dresden Dolls' various anachronisms, violently jolting from burlesque pop to more classically minded compositions, while the three-part "Willie the Gorilla" sequences from eerie trip-hop to chamber post-rock before melting into industrial girth. Don't pet the animals.
