Kinski: October 23, 2015 Cake Shop

November 3, 2015


Call it post-rock or psych-rock if you want, but make sure your emphasis is on the rock. Since 1998, Seattle’s Kinski have been churning out a slew of records, many for Sub Pop and most recently with Kill Rock Stars, who released 2013’s Cosy Moments and this year’s 7 (or 8). The latter title is a reference to the band’s slightly confusing discography, though it’s not overly messy in any respect. I had some vague familiarity with Kinski prior but was still very much a newcomer a couple weeks back, seeing them live for the first time. The band stopped by Cake Shop on their brief East Coast tour to open for Oneida (that set here) and had the small room packed to the gills by a crowd clearly more in-the-know than me. This set draws mostly from 7 (or 8), adding a couple yet-to-be-titled songs and one classic cut, “Crybaby Blowout” off Down Below It’s Chaos (2007). One of my favorites from this set is off a (sadly, sold out at the source) split EP with Sandrider released earlier this year, the moody and impeccably-titled “The Narcotic Comforts of the Status Quo.”

I recorded this set with the AKG’s set up on the ceiling at the edge of the stage, combined with an expert, true stereo board feed from Cake Shop FOH, Clint. The results are nothing short of spectacular. Enjoy!
