Kinski is back with Alpine Static on
Sub Pop Records. Im amazed at how deftly
these guys can go back and forth between beautiful
slow music and chaotic noise. They go back and forth
between upbeat and slow (or no) beat and they make
it all sound musics always supposed to have
been that way.
And I dont remember any lyrics. Were there
any? I mean, I know they are primarily an instrumental
band, but was there an obligitary song with or lyrics?
Wow. I think they won me over without lyrics. Maybe
thats a good thing. You can kind of idealize
what the song is about when its not wrapped
in the context of lyrics. You can make the song into
being about whatever you want it to be about. There
are sometimes Sonic Youth Daydream
Nation era moments, but they quickly transform
into something more Kinski-like and not copycat-like.
Where do these guys draw their inspiration from? I
want to listen to their music collection, I think
I would like it.
Theres even spaciness. Almost Hearts of
Space-like spaciness, from the ambient record
label. They are noisy, spacey, experimental, and I
have hard time naming a band that sounds anything
