The New Kinetics “Contact”

Time for some straight-up indie rock a la old Yeah Yeah Yeahs, with a bit of a rockabilly edge. Tracks such as “Riffle Raff” must sound great live, perhaps with an onstage guest like Neko Case.
“Wind Me Up, Hear Me Sing” features Brian singing, and it makes me think of some old Bob Dylan, although his vocals are certainly clearer. “Cha-Cha” focuses on Birdy’s vocals again, and the result is fantastic.
A slower track can be found on “Polly Pocket.” It’s good as well, but the faster tracks are definitely the winners here.
