Brooklyn based band.
“The music on Bait Is for Sissies is always well-produced and holds your attention. If you are a sissy, that’s your bait. Everyone playing on the album and Talon herself have loads of indie credibility, especially on the furious drums that sound like caffeinated chopsticks…”
"Talon brings a weird, feisty angst to her brand of shoegaze, and the first foray into the album has plenty of it. Rhythmic guitar strums and quick-hitting drum rolls liven Talon’s deadpan delivery"
"Get ready to feel fighty and full of it. Full of life, full of fury, full of wanting to never compromise. The scuzzy distortion on the guitars, the rolling drums, and Kino Kimino's sharply angled vocals all smack of jittery dissatisfaction and 90s musical tropes."
"Let’s get the record straight: with Bait is for Sissies, Kino Kimino have produced a stellar album that negates its new-born debut status. Fraught with emotion from start to finish, fine musicianship and the songwriting talent of front woman Kim Talon are added to the whiteboard to create an explosion of punk pop carnival colours."
“Kino Kimino, the whimsical quirky brainchild of punk eccentric Kim Talon (with contributions from Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth), is mostly known for sweet-and-sour rock with matching quirky art-student-esque videos.”
Founded in the winter of 2014 with borrowed guitars and a month long trial of Ableton; Laundry Day began as an experiment amongst friends but quickly found traction both in their hometown of New Haven and in surrounding cities.
With shows at The Bowery Electric, and BAR, supporting roles for bands like You Won't, Frontier Ruckus, The Spring Standards, and Jeffrey Lewis. With friends in high and low places, Laundry Day are all too excited to see what their project has in store for them.
Mike Kusek of Bilge Rat
New Haven's Bilge Rat traffic in a tangled chamber grunge, knotting themselves up in elegantly conflicted moments of dissonance and coaxing some grace out of the pile of discord. Comprised of Michael Kusek, Ryan Kalentkowski, and Quinn Pirie (Kindred Queer), Bilge Rat combine dense guitar work with jazz informed drums and Kusek's cutting nasal croon.
