Puerto Muerto's "Your Bloated Corpse Has Washed Ashore!", a nineteen song epic about swashbuckling and harlotry, is niche indie at its best. With a Spanish-folk-guitar-meets-German cabaret sound, the husband and wife duo have enough quasi-historical referances to make arcana-craving hipsters beam. What if Kurt Weill wrote songs for Shane MacGowan? What if Maria Callas covered David Bowie and Brian Wilson produced? What if Leonard Cohen hooked up with the Bulgarian Women's Choir? What if Edith Piaf sang on an Ennio Morricone soundtrack? What if Lydia Mendoza made a record with Tom Waits? What If?

"They dart from near alt-country sounds to sea-faring jigs that'd get heavy play on a jukebox at the bottom of the deep, dark sea, and they laugh out loud at other's grim misfortune. We love that."


"Uniquely smarmy and intelligent acoustic rock that covers everything from alternative country to German cabaret to Spanish folk...Captain Beefheart meets Kurt Weill via Tom Waits"
