Kind: Rocket Science
Stoner/psych rock veterans let off some steam
Like many supergroups, Kind mash their respective musical backgrounds together like they’re frying up last night’s leftovers.
Formed from members of Elder, Black Pyramid, Rozamov and Roadsaw, the lineup won’t set the world on fire unless you only listen to bands who play Desertfest, but the prospect of four seasoned guys from heavy psych and stoners’ fertile pastures is intriguing. Dissecting the spun-out, stonerish grooves of their other projects and yanking out its psychedelic membrane, Rocket Science sounds more like a bad trip than a backyard party.
