Boomkat Product Review:
‘Kin ell, The Body; U OK, hun? Lee Burford and Chip King’s cultishly adored project appears to take absolutely no prisoners on their first recordings since 2019
Marking their first solo jag after ‘I Have Fought Against It, But I Can’t Any Longer’ in 2018 (they’ve collaborated with Thou and Uniform over the interim), the duo deal in their most obliterated music with a concentrated, unflinching style that feels utterly fucking necessary right now.
Everything seethes in the red at a venomous biting point, with guitars, drums and electronics congealed into a mass of matted skin, hair and blood, with vocals alternately wretching with a BM wretchedness, hollering for dear life, or buried down in the belly of it. They’re perhaps matched for sheer ruthlessness by fellow Providence, Rhode Island residents, Black Mecha and Wold, but even still they’re on some scorched earth all of their own in this monstrous creation.
