King Khan & The Shrines - What Is?! (2007)

Finally able and willing to post something since by return from the great nation of Canada. Suitably in honor of Montreal I am sharing one of my favorite musicians from that glorious city, I'd murder for a metro like that. I've previously shared The King Khan and BBQ Show on the blog, and that is the most recent King Khan project. However, there is the band preceding that, King Kahn & The Shrines. Khan is one of those musicians that shows is control of the genre by being able to seamlessly blend in various influences and styles into his songs. What Is?! doubtlessly has the traditional garage rock inspirations like The Stooges and MC5, but also borrows from the sleazier 90s garage scene without mimicking. Overall, a very happy, mildy-psychedelic album about having a good time.

To be had here:
