Mosquito Cabaret – River King
|Mosquito Cabaret - River King|
Release Date: Out Now
It’s no surprise to see Gogol Bordello high up in the list of influences of Virginia collective Mosquito Cabaret as this single, ‘River King’, has that gypsy vibe from the very first accordion note and rusty cymbal trill. Soon enough, that familiar bouncing rhythm kicks in and the dramatic, moustachioed vocals of a circus ringmaster. This kind of music can be heard through the ages and across multiple cultures but wherever it is heard it will incite dancing and good times in all those who hear it so it’s always worth pausing to appreciate a timeless and lament filled piece of folk music.
