The Kills

Established fans of the Kills' trademark heavy blues-rock won’t be disappointed by last month’s long awaited Blood Pressures. And for those unfamiliar with Jamie Hince's and Alison Mossheart’s jams, it's a good introduction to the snarling, seductive attitude the Kills pull off again and again. Mossheart's vocals are as tantalizing as ever, and Hince's guitar sounds robust, like it's out to take care of some serious business. Blood Pressures' first single and early leak, "Satellite," is destined to become Kills classics, as is the stately, pathos-laden opener, "Future Starts Slow," the flashing, disdainful "Nail in My Coffin," and the wickedly smoldering "DNA.” With Cold Cave, The Entrance Band.
