"If you’ve ever wondered what the members of Sonic Youth are up to these days, look no further than Kino Kimino’s debut album Bait Is For Sissies. The Brooklyn-based grunge pop project, fronted by guitarist and performance artist Kim Talon (Eagle and Talon, Jan), combines a quirky-cute Bratmobile vocal style with post-punk backing. The album features none other than drummer Steve Shelley and guitarist Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth. Their signature dark, chugging rhythms add a sly twist to her offbeat-on-purpose melodies—an interesting play on the usual indie rock outfit, think Fugazi meets Sleater-Kinney. Kino Kimino is a mismatch of genres paying homage to female rock bands of the 90s and 00s and the result is a completely original sound."
