"Airs Above Your Station" CD (Sub Pop)
Droning rock power. Sure, most of the songs hit the 8-minute mark; if you think you might enjoy droning, modulated, Stereolab-crossed-with-Sabbath, this is a great value for the money. The problem is that Black Sabbath is awesome and Kinski sounds like a generic rehashing of soft / loud dynamics powered by a rack of effects pedals and processors. While I certainly wouldn't presume to claim that I could play this, I'm sure I know people who - given a line of credit at a guitar retailer - could. It's true that the only musical sin is being boring - and I believe it is - then this record is heading straight to hell.
