Kid Bloom – Lately It Feels Alright
Louder than War have a listen to this Californian outfit’s insanely catchy riffs.
Immediately this track has an infectious riff that is slightly off the beat. I like that. As the track progresses, you get the impression that Kid Bloom are so laid back they probably recorded this horizontally.
Again, the insanely infectious riff runs throughout and it is punctuated by some distorted guitar grungy interludes that meld perfectly into the keyboard driven backline.
Half way through the offbeat riff melds into some nicely weird drum signatures that Primus would be proud of!
The song itself doesn’t seem to go anywhere, yet i like it for that! It seems to make no sense in a world that prides itself on stability and order. Well Kid Bloom aren’t about stability and order, so suck it.
