OK, it’s 2016.  2015 was a blast, and looking forward to much more in the coming year.. New album, East Coast tour, West Coast tour, shows with good friends around the country and at home, a couple new videos made by talented friends here in Seattle (thanks Mike & Carlos!), some rad festival gigs (Sasquatch, Capitol Hill Block Party, Macefield Festival..), live radio performance on KEXP, some nice spins on the radio including “The Best Show” on WFMU with Tom Scharpling, the list goes on!  Many thanks to all who’ve attended our shows, purchased the record,  and everyone who’s contacted us from around the world.  We appreciate it!

The new album 7 (0r 8) is still in the shops, or purchasable here.

7 (or 8) has been mentioned on Year End Lists!
NadaMucho  “…they’ve burnt themselves a clearing that’s surrounded by blown out fuzz, soaring psychedelia, crisp atmospherics, and motorik rhythms. Their 2015 release 7 (or 8) indicates they’re still at the top of their game.”   More here.
Ghetto Blaster Magazine‘s Andrew R. Fetter says “Sweet son of a bitch! This is probably their heaviest album and will kick you in the ass every time you listen.”

“Kinski’s latest gnarly trip called “I Fell Like a Fucking Flower,” complete with a twisted video to match.”  By Carlos Lopez;
I Fell Like A Fucking Flower video premiere at Noisey
Kinski’s mad puppet ride through the pitfalls of drinking, by Mike Wern:Kinski – Drink Up And Be Somebody (Official Music Video)
