Hey guys, I haven't posted anything in a while, too busy sorting through the crap-pile of 2008 music releases thus far (although R.E.M. did leak today)...but after listening to Midnight Boom, new album from The Kills for maybe the one hundred and twenty first time, and reading a recent interview with the band in Nylon magazine, I can say I still have faith in 2008.
Let me just say that this is the first album I have ever listened to from the Kills, but I am DYING to hear more. To brief the interview and to explain why this band that started out with major White Stripes comparisons to producing something like this-- Jamie Hince and Alison Mosshart travelled to Mexico and everywhere else under the sun to collect thoughts for lyrics, each coming up with their own ideas: Jamie's riddled with hip-hop beats and Alison working with an acoustic guitar and four track. The mash-up is fantastic, and a lot of the tracks still maintain a pretty original rock sound, an album that "...sounds like 2008" says Mosshart. My favorite track is probably "Tape Song", I hope everyone loves this as much as I do.
