Little surprise that Fighting Naked, the debut album by Humanwine
, sounds like a freak-filled cabaret show. The Boston group is led by Brian Viglione, the drumming half of the Kurt Weill-loving punk band the Dresden Dolls. Humanwines music veers closer to gypsy-flavored indie-rock, with theatrical pieces set around trash-can percussion and woozy waltzes. Theres nothing on Fighting Naked (which is due in April) as melodically grabbing as the Dolls Yes, Virginia, but the wild turns make for a complementary side project.
