To paraphrase Donny and Marie, this durable New York combo was a little bit [a=Frank Zappa], a little bit cacophonous punk. That combination makes its quirkcore expeditions either grin-inducing or grating, depending on one's ability to stomach the unique vocal style of frontman Tomas Antona, whose high-pitched screech falls somewhere between [a=Perry Farrell] and [a=Sparks] frontman Russell Mael on the weed-o-meter. While it took the quintet a while to find its footing — the first two albums are little more than extended, grad-school fortified fart jokes — Alice Donut did develop a knack for sniggeringly malevolent tweaking of mainstream and underground mores alike.
