KiNDLEiN [Flunked in Romanian] is our first release on cassette here at Hiss And Groove. We are happy to have this album on MC in our store soon. About the Kindlein sound one can say that it was soaked in blues and rock, left for over 40 years skating on the thick ice of the Romanian folklore and than thrown into the fire of jazz. Tube amps, guitars, unconventional percussion and microphones made of pure solid silver custom handcrafted by hammer & fire portray the setup. Sergiu Catana’s free poetic approach of drums, the unison and harmonically interdependent sax lines of Irinel Cirlan and the dry rythmic voice and guitar of Emil Kindlein encompass Romanian traditional poetry lines that were cut by the special skills of the Poem Jockey.
Mp3 downloads are free.
