KINO KIMINO – “Rosy Rudiger” (Stereogum Premiere)

KINO KIMINO, the project of Kim Talon with Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo and Steve Shelley, have signed with Wavves frontman Nathan Williams’ Ghost Ramp label for the US release of their new album Bait Is for Sissies. We’ve already shared “Passion” and “Caste Out,” and today we’re premiering the first official single since the Ghost Ramp signing. “Rosy Rudiger” is a melancholy mid-tempo rocker marked by guitars that swing from high-end squall to low-end churn. It’s paired with what appears to be a muted tutorial on how to hang faux brick wallpaper on an actual brick wall. Check it out below.
