On their sixth full-length studio release Melt Banana exercise a hitherto undetected area of their musical musculature: the “rock” region. Summing up an entire album, and one as diverse as Bambi’s Dilemma, with such a pedestrian qualifier is risky business, agreed, but it seems to fit like never before.The band, of course, refuses to accommodate any such pigeonholing: “Maybe it is rock, but maybe not. We just make whatever we want. We just follow our own instincts!” The truth is MxBx makes music as they please, relying solely on their own maverick talent to get them where they need to be. Bambi’s Dilemma’s eighteen tracks careen from extreme, fast-blast attacks to more serene moments (usually reserved for non-album releases) to the band’s revolutionary new, guitar and bass-less “Theremin-core.”Look for them on tour throughout the US, May through June, 2007.
