Kinski - Down Below It's Chaos (2007)

Kinski is both referred to as post-rock and noise rock, but these Seattle gents are positively about loudness. In the past they've produced drone-like and guitar driven epics, yet in this latest attempt they've interwoven more heavy rock to the already experimental nature of their sounds. It all makes for a good head-rattling experience if the volume is adjusted highly enough. Perhaps one of the most shocking revelations to be heard upon the album is that there's singing on a few tracks, not something Kinski has previously done. There are still long drones to be found here as well, with unquestionably post-rocky sentiments. The varity of fast to slow is part of what makes this album as good as it is. I'll admit my favorite tracks are still completely instrumental. I've special endearments towards "Argentina Turner" and "Child Had To Catch A Train" both of which I had to give second listens to immediately after finished the first play of the LP. An amazing thing about Kinski is that there is no album better to begin with than another, they are all unique, but immensely interesting. Therefore if you have yet to hear this group, and are a fan of noisy instrumental rock, I strongly suggest giving it a whirl.
