KRISTEENYOUNG
KRISTEENYOUNG are a NYC-based keys, bass and drums (zeppelin-heavy, avant garde, piano-bash rock) trio. They have toured with Morrissey, played on the Late Late show with Craig Ferguson, recorded a (Kristeen Young written) duet with David Bowie. KRISTEENYOUNG have a new album coming out later this year called Live at the Witch’s Tit and Nick Zinner from Yeah Yeah Yeah’s guests on it for a few songs.
One Prayer One Sin
One Prayer One Sin’s chaotic but composed saxophone riffs, monstrous Cale-like violin lines, and dark, funk-driven, minimal basslines and percussion all indirectly underscore a very acute sense of song structure, melody, and composition. The addition of John Carpenter-esque analog synth wails and treatments crossfade into their screaming gospel choir (yes, they have backup singers too) evoking Young Americans and Berlin-era Iggy Pop. Caution: you will be moved to dance inappropriately. The lack of guitar opens a lot of sonic space and right there strides Scuotto’s surprisingly deep, warm voice – floating amidst the waves – delivering narratives, with his unmistakable New York cadence, of a world that can exist only in an undiscovered Burrough’s novel.
Invisible Familiars
Jared kinda sounds like Mark Bolan. I’ll just say it, cause you might think it. It’s science. When I asked him what record felt to him like how he wanted Disturbing Wildlife to feel to me (out January 2015 on OMRC), he said “Cuckooland by Robert Wyatt,” promptly adding “and the first time I listened to What’s Going On through headphones, stoned.” He’s got a Small Faces song link for just about everything I say and he knew the Lifetones song I sent him yesterday, which may be my secret litmus test. When I listen to Invisible Familiars, I don’t hear just anything – I hear everything. It’s the cumulative result of being alive with the radio on. – Sara Padgett Heathcott, Hometapes
