Originally from Pittsburgh, but now residing in Brooklyn, Ball of Flame Shoot Fire take conventional indie rock and flip it on its side, sounding like a crazed hybrid of Man Man, Wolf Parade and Animal Collective, with the slightest hint of Harry Nilsson. Within the same song, the quirky band — consisting of Patrick Kelly, Jess Tambellini, Peter Henry, Tim Good, and Winston Cook-Wilson — waver between catchy melodies and dissonant raucous, tamed verses and explosive anthems. They incorporate trumpets, synth and accordion, and the vocals alone are an unpredictable joyride, a mix of sing-talking, yelps and screeches.
Pots and Knives is the latest album by Ball of Flame Shoot Fire.
