Sparks, Hippopatamus [BMG] out September 8, 2017
–art-pop, glam rock. Cinematic, international, avant-garde, cabaret style art pop/ glam rock from California brothers Ron Mael and Russell Mael. They’ve been around since the 70s. I’d not heard of them. The music reminds me of Wonderstuff and Dresden Dolls. Lots of piano. Varied instrumentation. It’s super creative, fun, daring, edgy.
