The third and final album from the trio of Ted Barrow, Lepke B. and Xentos “Fray” Bentos and perhaps the most extreme of the lot. Like an insane invading insect race’s take on a greatest hits album by a glamrock band that never existed, this is a high-octane rollercoaster through post-modern styling, replete with numberless twists and turns that will leave your brains scrambled. Worth having for the opener alone, the sublime “Glucose,” which demonstrates DTCD’s complete command of mutant song form. A one-band new wave of their own, in their all too brief career they practically reinvented rock music.
In 2010, Kinnie The Explorer released their first EP Blood, It’s On Every Wall. The EP was so well received that it earned them a spot as the opener of Noah and The Whale during their show at O2 Academy Bournemouth, UK even though it was only their fourth gig ever. Since then we’ve been patiently waiting for their first full length release which is why we’re very excited to give you an exclusive first listen to their self titled debut album, Kinnie The Explorer a week prior to it’s official release.
The album features full on interlaced guitar jam sessions and driving drum rhythms that keep you moving at a steady even pace throughout the album. “Scissor Dance” the opener is a pleasantly upbeat starter for an otherwise fairly mellow, but never boring ride. However, the real shocker on the track is the jazz inspired bass which gains momentum and then completely takes over in the end. Unexpected, but fitting to say the least. The perfect introduction to the jazz influence felt on nearly every track. “In Limbo” counters with singer Peter Lancelely’s previously absent falsetto stealing the show. The simplicity of the track mixed with Lanceley’s stunning vocals brings a whole new dimension to the band. Who knew he’d hidden that away this whole time?
Kinnie The Explorer proves to be a versatile rock band unafraid to experiment with various genres, picking out the pieces that suit them best and weaving them in to the original and comprehensive sound that you’ve heard here today. It’s hard to believe that all members of this band are in their teens. They continue to accomplish what many musicians with careers twice as long have only hoped to and this is just the beginning. Preorder their LP here which is due to ship around February 1st. We’re exited to watch their careers progress. This is a band that you’ll want to keep up with.

Another label-reading fail: some Shaoxing rice wine, which I used for cooking last night.
That bottle had been sitting in the cupboard for a while, and I used it a couple of times before without apparent problems. But yeah, relatively small amounts at a time of a fermented product with wheat at the very bottom of the ingredients list. This time it was enough to set off a reaction.
I knew I got hold of something I shouldn’t, and was checking the thankfully short list of unusual items I ate in the past couple of days. Yep, once again, there was something with an ingredient I missed. And I felt really stupid again for not quadruple-checking (or whatever) the label on a bottle I had used multiple times before. :-|
Just what I needed with everything else going on right now, but it’s just classic.
