KIMOCK ::: Satellite City


Welcome back to another Weekly Pick! This week, I'm revisiting an album that I consider to be one of my personal favorites to come out this year. KIMOCK's "Satellite City" is just one of those records that melds into your daily life. It holds that dear place in this consummate audiophile's collection that can fit the shoe of almost any utility -- it just feels good to put this record on, hence my returning visit for this week's post.

"Satellite City", the title track from KIMOCK's album is a very groove centered piece with Leslie Mendelson's beautiful vocals at the helm. Band leader and namesake, Steve Kimock pulls beautiful and ethereal tones out his guitar and the production as a whole. There are some really nice moments in "Satellite City", musical breath and space are abundant here. The tricky pulling away of the band at around 4:00 is just pure joy. The unique blend of toothsome musicality, melody and taste really make this track and record a winner for me and I hope it does the same for you.

Thanks for listening as always and I'll see you next week!
