SWL #41: Lazer Kitty, "Dino Wipeout"

10/12/13: Lazer Kitty at Everyday Music

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: I LOVE AUTUMN. Bright, chilly afternoons make for phenomenal daydreams and my listening habits over the past few weeks have evolved to match the changing scenery--namely, a steady diet of Superior Viaduct’s repress of Sensations’ Fix’s 1974 debut “Fragments of Light”, and “Wrong to Run”, that gorgeous new TJ Max disc from Debacle Records. Well, as of the 8th of this month you can add the new disc by Seattle’s Lazer Kitty to that list. The Seattle-based trio consisting of Scot Porter (aka. Vox Mod), brother Kyle Porter (founder of Unsound America and a ton of other stuff), and Jason Jordan (formerly Exohxo) is prolific. Don’t believe me? Between December of 2010 and June of 2012 they published more than 24 hours worth of improv-y, space-rock-y goodness to their bandcamp. “Moons” marks their first effort in almost a year and a half and listening to “Dino Wipeout” it's clear that they are as strong as ever. The track delivers careening percussion work tempered by sticky sweet, futuristic synths, and a baseline warm enough to make Simon Gallup jealous. My only regret is that you guys can’t hear the live version of this song that I recorded at their Everyday Music in-store last Saturday. No word on a physical release yet but keep an eye on for more.
