Kino Kimino talk about inspiration + play Elsewhere on 01.30

Brooklyn darlings Kino Kimino's debut LP "Bait is for Sissies," featuring Sonic Youth Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley serving as session men, will throw you off-guard, just like the band's bizarre, at time nonsensical videos. The brainchild of Kim Talon, the power trio offers deadpan vocals, gritty guitars, and 90's-cool-kid vibes embedded in an ever-shifting sonic soundscape. The final result fully justifies Kim's recent move from LA to the edgier NYC scene. Don't miss their uipcoming show at Elsewhere on January 30th, and those of you into guear and guitar pedals should check out the Kino Kimino's Q&A with Delicious Audio!

Blue Ray goes insane on “GrubHub”

Blue Ray is the frenetic, kooky outlet of musician Johnny Steines, the lone creative mind behind BR’s ninth release, GrubHub. Grubhub is an amalgamation of abstract indie weirdness, a collection of lofi tunes that presumably rattled around in Steines’ brain minutes before being recorded and bounced. It’s part Guided by Voices, part Wire, and part Pavement, exhibiting Steines’ unique relationship with each band's niche, whether it be GBV’s touch-and-go recording approach, Wire’s arty sensibilities, or Pavement’s juvenile hyperactiveness. It’s these types of releases that can reveal raw creative intuition from its creator, where more often than not, the album serves as a real time transcript of the process. GrubHub is both insane and clever, and it deserves a listen or two. Stream it below. -Charley Ruddell

Don’t miss the new gnarly space rock EP from The Rupert Selection

Boston’s post-rock trio The Rupert Selection are one of the few bands in New England that can mash hard, progressive rock and ambient space noodles into a signature sound. Their newest EP Modern Playground Medicine, plays out like a soundtrack to a space-age action movie; it’s one part blistering, jagged rock and roll, one part ambient weirdness. The trio somehow manage to channel hard/space rock bands like Quicksand and Failure while simultaneously displaying their influence in the landscapes of Stanley Kubrick, ultimately showcasing an effortless comfortability within their own unique vision. Get sucked into the vacuum of Modern Playground Medicine below. -Charley Ruddell
