Here at The Deli NYC we TOTALLY relate to quirky bands, maybe because we are writing from the place They Might Be Giants and Mixel Pixel call home. Ball of Flame Shoot Fire insert themselves in this bizarre, originality driven musical tradition with a sound that shares with those two bands a poppy approach to songwriting, although replacing their electronic tendencies with orchestral ones, and filtering the results with chaotic Captain Beefheart-ish influences. The outcome is a charmingly soulful, slightly crooked, and entertainingly unpredictable orchestral pop.

The band has been around since 2009 and is about to release their fourth album, entitled " Zileur (Mi-Mi-Mo-Mo)". They advanced a couple of free mp3s from it - the first one, entitled "Bad Thing," is pasted below. See them live at Cake Shop on September 7 with Miniboone, I'm Turning Into and The Meaning of Life.
