If you like Radiohead (but maybe weren’t crazy about their last album) then you’ll love Kiev. This is frankly the best music I’ve heard in a long while. Hints of Muse and the Grateful Dead pepper their tunes. Still waiting on a full-length debut album, but I suspect these guys will find a lot more fans soon.
Watch them live and be wowed.
Sounds a bit like a cross between Andrew Bird and Talking Heads.
Happy New Year!
Funkiest bass line I’ve heard all year…
I’d like to apologize to all the fine tunes I had to leave out, but these dozen were the ones that I listened to the most. Enjoy.
Father John Misty, “Nancy From Now On”
Grizzly Bear, “Yet Again”
Hospitality, “Eighth Avenue”
Mansions on the Moon, “Darkness”
Miniature Tigers, “Female Doctor”
Patrick Watson, “Quiet Crowd”
Poor Moon, “Holiday”
Rhye, “The Fall”
Sea Wolf, “Old Friend”
WhoMadeWho, “Below the Cherry Moon”
Wild Nothing, “Shadow”
Feel free to comment with your fave song of the year.
The classiest cat jazz has ever known.
