Boomkat Product Review:
This diamond of a 7” features the 1st and only known recording from arch goffs Karl O’Connor and Veronica Vasicka under their Kiss The Floor alias, as originally issued by Downwards in a measly edition of 30 copies at the Brooklyn Flea Record Fair, 05/10/13. Now shackled to a ferocious solo number from Karl and The Kurbcrawlers, Same Day (Again), and proffered by Oliver Ho’s Death & Leisure it’s finally available to us mere mortals on the shop/dance ‘floor.
As you may well presume, VV and KoC’s joint effort is just a little bit good. It sounds like Veronica is singing amid over some kinda of gaunt industro dub from Karl, all ricocheting rimshot embedded in distorted, monotone and bass licked with woozy melodica, although we couldn’t confirm/deny either way. Whatever, it’s exactly as potent as we’d imagined it to be, ripe for the dankest dance parlours.
Flipside, Karl and The Kurbcrawlers get a day pass for Same Day (Again), a diesel-stained full throttle deathrocker that’s kinda like the record equivalent of those fellas you see on a sunny day prancing their droptop kit car until the kids come home.
