What's The Use Of Crying When The Wolves Have Arrived?

by Aa Kismet

A weird and very personal (not in a singer/songwriter kind of vein) version of post(obscurism)rock, somewhat in between advanced lo-fi and sloppy perfectionism.
Genre: Rock: Progressive Rock

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
WHAT'S THE USE OF CRYING WHEN THE WOLVES HAVE ARRIVED
label : zzzzzz-records / Z6-991

This is the second cd by the dutch/american duo AA Kismet. Their firstborn (where's the rest of me ?) was an attempt to make the perfect pop-record (under their conditions), on this second cd they've abandoned that noble attempt. Recorded and produced in a barn in the countryside in the south of France it sounds somewhat in between advanced lo-fi and sloppy perfectionism. The main theme was to write within song-like structures, but they took the liberty to ignore those at moments of their own choice.

Bob Drake (usa) currently lives in france but used to work as a soundtechnician in Los Angeles as a favorite of many hip-hop acts, amongst others Ice Cube, who even swears at him on one of his cd's. He also worked for Peter Sellars, Ike & Tina Turner, Quincy Jones and others. His own music was allways more experimental. Apart from his solo work he played in The Nudes, the 5 uu's, Thinking Plague, the Science group and Hail.

Lukas Simonis (nl) lives in Rotterdam. Played/plays in Dull Schicksal, Morzelpronk, Trespassers W, Liana Flu Winks, Coolhaven and other groups. Lately he mainly made electronic and improvised music, working together with people like; Ann La Berge, Paulo Angeli, Jon Rose, Pierre Bastien and The Bohman Brothers.

BRILLIANT FRINGE
IF YOU ARE GETTING TIRED OF LISTENING TO A HUNDRED BANDS ALL TRYING TO SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF BANDS WHO HAVE MADE THE BIG- TIME BY TRYING TO SOUND LIKE THE PREVIOUS CROP OF BIG- LABEL BANDS.. WELL YOU GET THE PICTURE: THIS CD THROWS SO MANY MUSICAL CURVEBALLS THAT YOU CAN GET QUITE A VARIETY JUST FROM LISTENING TO A MINUTE OR TWO. A LOT OF FUN.

AA Kismet is like Beck's quirky foreign exchange student. Difficult to classify in one genre, AA Kismet's songs are catchy, but have unique arrangements and intelligent lyrics. Artsy, but not pretentious, this album is a refreshing departure from post-grunge pity parties and pop-punk wannabees.

delicious, beautiful, naughty
i had wanted to get this for a long time, and i\'m so glad i finally did. this is brilliant stuff. like others have said, this is for people who are tired of most stuff. it\'s like the sound track to the cat in the hat or horton hears a who. i can safely say i\'ve never heard anything like this
