Released May 17, 2019.
Taking cues from the hard bop, dub reggae, the American modern experimental classical tradition, klangfarbenmelodie, thrash metal, plus kraut- prog- psych- and post-rock, Kiss The Frog’s “…And Impending Doom” is a distillation and extension of these myriad traditions into tomorrow, now.
Recorded through antique microphones and analog mixing boards directly to 2″ analog tape (and digital back up) “…And Impending Doom” purposefully frayed production aesthetic adds classic worn-in tone and tactile presence to Kiss The Frog’s improvisational soundscapes.
