#245: King Blood - I've Got My Kicks So I Don't Feel


King Blood

I've Got My Kicks So I Don't Feel

February 7 2014 (self-release)

10/10



When I first reviewed King Blood's self-titled debut EP last year, the first thing I noticed about the duo was how little they seemed to need a bassist; their music, a lo-fi blend of psychedelia and surf-rock, just didn't seem to warrant the inclusion of one, and why should it? Fast forward six months, however, and with their second EP 'I've Got My Kicks So I Don't Feel', Aaron Powell and Robbie Day are no longer the enigmatic two piece they were. Instead they've enlisted the talents of Sam Hollis on bass, in a bid to really flesh this second record out.
