If P.T. Barnum could have been a musician in the modern era, he might have come up with something similar to the absurd, bombastic spectacle that is Uncle Monsterface, whose shtick is equal parts performance art, circus sideshow and psychedelic pop. Clearly influenced by the work of Jim Henson and Sid and Marty Kroft, the bizarre Brooklyn-based act composes campy yet disturbingly catchy and aggressive carnival music and delivers it in the form of a surrealistically fun puppet show featuring inflatable animals and Timothy Leary's prairie dogs. From an outfit that admittedly draws from the soundtrack of Katamari Damacy, you'd almost expect nothing less. Attempting to classify a group this weird is probably beyond anyone's immediate capability, which makes it all the more fun.
