It takes no time at all to realize that unconventionality is the key component of the debut album by the Bastard Fairies, 2007's Memento Mori (a title which is a Latin phrase that "calls for awareness of one's mortality"). The two-person band — comprised of lyricist/singer Yellow Thunder Woman and composer/instrumentalist/producer Robin L. Davey — penned all of the album's tracks in a single week. And they opted to go the D.I.Y. route rather than the conventional one — recording the tunes via Garage Band on a Mac computer, while Davey played the music on old thrift store guitars, children's instruments, and "other odd bits." The end result is a style of music that manages to sound pretty darn original, although it's not hard to picture the album-opening pop ditty "The Greatest Love Song" crossing over to the mainstream. Elsewhere, the duo is not afraid to get quirky, such as on "The Boy Next Door" and the Björk-esque "We're All Going to Hell." With the Bastard Fairies having already built a following before the release of Memento Mori due to a sizeable amount of internet downloads, the CD release (which includes five bonus tracks and a DVD) should only expand their fan base.
