Bonus MP3: The Kül -- "We Can Live"

In last week's paper, I reviewed The Kül's new release Soul 4 Gold, a disc that blends a whole mishmash of funk, psychedelic and even stoner rock influences into a disc that, at various points throughout its listen, recalls Jimi Hendrix, Sly Stone, Prince, Gnarls Barkley, TV On The Radio and Lenny Kravitz, among others. But, as I wrote in my review, "despite these well-traveled routes, the band's sound manages to come off as surprisingly fresh"

Have a listen... and a download, courtesy of the band itself.

The Kül -- "We Can Live"

"We Can Live" is one of the few tracks on the disc that doesn't showcase the guitars at full-flex capactiy, and, in this case, it allows the band's proclivity for catchy songwriting to shine through over the noise--a sign, I think that bodes well for this band's future.

Don't get me wrong; the guitar play elsewhere on the disc is pretty great, too. But it's nice to see the band having success in its other forays as well.

Either way, enjoy.
