Hailing from New York, New York, psychedelic pop/punk band KISS KISS released their sophomore effort The Meek Shall Inherit What’s Left July 7, 2009. Courtesy of Eyeball Records, …What’s Left is an eclectic blend of psychedelic tendancies, infectious pop melodies, and intense hardcore energy that’s virtually impossible to ignore. There’s a definite macabre edge to this quirky compilation, no doubt as a result of the hardships the band has recently been through–more than 17 line-up changes, bouts of depression, and serious health problems to name a few–but instead of transferring that dark energy onto the listener, KISS KISS manages to spin it into a positive ear worm of a record.
To truly experience KISS KISS for yourself, you have to listen to …What’s Left first hand. Luckily, you can preview the entire album THIS WEEK ONLY via AOL’a Spinner here. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity, people so don’t miss out. KISS KISS will take you on a journey through their collective, demented psyche and spit you out on the other end with a new found appreciation for avante garde musical styles.
