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.
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.
