The best kept secret in music


"Deli Review of Sun & Glacier"

"Their 2006 album Sun and Glacier (out on Paribus Records) is an intense flux of sounds and emotions: fuzzy streams of distorted guitars meet melodic and rather suggestive melodies and words." - The Deli Magazine

"Village Voice Review"

I'm happy to say they've really stepped up to the plate and hit one out of the ballpark (or rock club). The bands sound has evolved into a dreamy wash of well-layered guitar riffs and soft-tease vocals. - Village Voice

"Delusions of Adequacy Web Review"

Of all of the discs floating around with bands that seem to be liberally ‘borrowing’ from their influences, Kinetic’s Sun and Glacier comes off as a disc that stands on its own merits outside of the ‘sounds like’ category. The rhythm section is polished, both the rhythm and lead guitar playing is ace, and the production is perfect for the band’s material – hazy, but balanced enough for each individual instrument to carry a strong amount of weight throughout the entire album. Recommended to the highest degree. - Delusions of Adequacy

.....Feedback. An empty pill bottle. A half-glass of whiskey. A sleepless night. A panic attack. A tense conversation. A broken heart. An aimless walk. Summer/Autumn/Winter/Spring. Noise. Melody....

k i n e t i c are not a fun band. They may make you want to do bad things.

Their first record, "Sun & Glacier," came out in spring 2006 on the Chicago indie collective Paribus Records. The band followed up with a summer tour of the South and Midwest.

Work began on the second k i n e t i c record, "An Army of Lovers Can Be Beaten," in May 2007 at The Fort in Bushwick with engineer Jim Bentley, but was derailed by a band member’s suicide attempt and subsequent hospitalization. However, work on the album is back on track and it is slated for a late autumn release, once again on Paribus.

"An Army of Lovers Can Be Beaten" is a late-night New York record, pulsing with bleak, often violent lyrics, intricate sonics, and an unsettling sexuality.
