STOLEN BABIES / Naught [2012]

6 years after their debut album, There Be Squabbles Ahead, off-kilter cabaret metal group Stolen Babies finally grace us with their follow-up, 2012's Naught.  
Well educated by their Mr. Bungle and Oingo Boingo albums, the Babies are gracefully and viciously led by vocalist/accordion player Dominique Lenore Persi who seamlessly bounces back and forth between twisted theatrical vocals to snarling growls and screeches. Sure there's legions of other acts that pull off this sound better but the Babies are the most instantly digestible and entertaining for the uninitiated.
