KING KHAN & THE SHRINES are back with another heavy dose of garage rockin' psychedelic soul in the form of a new album, IDLE NO MORE, out NOW on MERGE RECORDS !!!!!!!!
it's been awhile since we've heard any new material from KING KHAN AND THE SHRINES..... their last full length was 2007's smash hit, WHAT IS?.... (the following year, VICE put out the best of comp, THE SUPREME GENIUS OF KING KHAN AND THE SHRINES, though, but that didn't include any new songs)... so it's good to hear KING KHAN back with his old SUN RA, BACK FROM THE GRAVE COMPS and STAX RECORDS loving cohorts throwing down some new syrupy sweet, fuzzed out, soul soaked cavestompin' dancefloor-slaying tunes to kick start our next late night parties.....!!!!!
nobody, i mean, nobody is smashing those old soul, garage and psych records in one HUGE party record like KING KHAN is and on IDLE NO MORE you get TWELVE ass shakin' lysergic R&B stompers that'll get even the squarest of squares up and on his or her feet........
let's just say SYL JOHNSON, ANDRE WILLIAMS and SLY STONE would be proud......
you can't deny a good time,
and that is exactly what KING KHAN & THE SHRINES bring to the table with their new lp !!!!!
grab some friends
and lots of booze,
crank the stereo
and get ready to go all night long!!!!
fun times are ahead!!!!!!!!
