Our Rating:
There are a few things I should say about this band. They are political, anti-capitalist specifically but they wrap this up in a rather moreish musical package. They remind me of The Wolfhounds in this respect.

I would file KCS in the psych folder simply because that encompasses best what they do musically. Not that it matters. This is psych music with horns on it, great big brass ones! And that makes it swing like great big brass balls as on "Speaking Of Crow" and "What Amanda Meant". This is something not a lot off psych bands do.

The more experimental tracks such as "Memory Is Imagined" and "Mirror The Soul" are clearly psychedelic. The other thing I would say is that they are Stuart Lee's favourite band so anything I might have to say in this review won't move the arrow on their zeitgeist dial any further one way or the other.

It is difficult to pick a favourite track from the album, they are all exceptional and if you get hold of it and press play "Clouds Of Money" will tell you everything you need to know. No doubt this album will feature on many end of year lists and I get that, it is very good indeed.
