Kim Talon is the force behind the project Kino Kimino. There’s no question that the project’s connections to Sonic Youth (recording at their studio with members of the band on the album) often gets them in the door, but it’s truly Talon’s powerful performance and intriguingly quirky delivery – wavering between cute/playful and artfully obtuse – paired with that familiar no wave-originated roil, that drives things here. With a band rounded out by some of the Brooklyn scene’s most ferociously talented woman, Kino Kimino is a force of nature, and we look forward to seeing what’s in the works as they creep towards the next record, due some time in the near future.
