SRR 026 Kash OPEN CD
Hailing from Turin , Italy , the four young men of Kash (Stefano Abba--Vocals, Paride Lanciani--Guitar, Luigi Raca—Bass, and Flavio Cravero—Drums), have cooked up Open, a record that is truly one of a kind. This is definitely no watered down, Chef Boyardee pap for the masses. The tastes here are robust, intrepid and intense, just like the cuisine of their home country.
Sit down at the table with Kash, and you will soon experience many different flavors all rolled into one. Hints of post-rock intermingle with traces of no-wave. Driving, angular melodies are followed by an aftertaste of sparse, impassioned soundscapes. Some may detect the sweetness of US Maple, while others may construe the bold textures of Captain Beefheart. This whole array is then spiced up even further as guest musicians Steve Sostak (Sweep The Leg Johnny, ZZZZ) and Mitch Cheney (Rumah Sakit, Sweep The Leg Johnny) ad their own special ingredients to the mix.
Open is such a satisfying experience, it might have you wiping the sweat from your brow and patting your gut as you exclaim “That is one spicy meatball!”
