The Kinison
What Are You Listening To? (La Salle)

By: Mike SOS

The Kinison's unbridled punk rock spirit has been vividly captured on WHAT ARE YOU LISTENING TO?, an 11-track release laden with intriguing twists and turns and convincing vitriolic virtue. Helmed by the same folks that brought us Refused and Poison the Well, it's no surprise that the caustic vocals and jagged rhythms on tracks like "Oh Boy That Girl Can Move" and "You'll Never Guess Who Died" are a bit reminiscent of Glassjaw's or At the Drive In's most melodically fractured moments, while the straight-ahead sharpness of "Lake Calmern is Full Now" will skillfully chip away at that gnawing pit of angst in your gut. Anguish hasn't sounded this hip in a long time, and we've got The Kinison to thank.
