HELOISE & THE SAVIOR FAIRE Trash, Rats And Microphones (Simian Records) New York’s electro-rock outfit Heloise & The Savior Faire will release their new album Trash, Rats and Microphones April 29 via Simian Records (Elijah Wood’s new label and joint-venture with Yep Roc Records). With a live show described by Disorder Magazine as a “multi-orgasmic experience with heels on,” Heloise & The Savior Faire have gained popularity in the UK after making their TV debut on The Graham Norton Show. Encapsulating all 80’s pop fetishes, the band is fronted by the charismatic Heloise Williams and backed by two electrifying dancers (Joe Shepard and Sara Sweet Rabidoux) as well as a full band (James Bellizia on guitar, Luke Hughett on drums and Jason Diamond on bass). The Times UK has described them as “somewhere between Goldfrapp and The Scissor Sisters.” "Trash, Rats And Microphones” is a brilliant collection of twelve originals that marry New Wave rock, disco rhythms, and effervescent synth-pop to Heloise's succinct, idiosyncratic lyrical style. On the underground hit, "Odyle," New Age aphorisms are lampooned; while "On Fuego" paints a vivid picture of a fiesta out of bounds, equal parts wet T-shirt contest and Mexican hat dance. Deborah Harry of Blondie fame drops by to join the fun on "Canadian Changs" and the lean and sinewy "Downtown."
