Morning Hype! King Khan and the Shrines

The new album by international psych-soul superstars King Khan and the Shrines is making a strong, and I mean very strong, push for album of the year. After battling through a pretty dark period which included a stint in a mental institution, the wild eyed garage rock overlord known as Khan got the band back together and put out easily his strongest effort to date. In a good mood? Put this on. In a bad mood? Hit play and watch the mood go from zero to hero! The record is called Idle No More, named after the Canadian First Nations protest movement, and they’re touring across North America through October and November. If you don’t go see this crazy collective live trust me, you are blowing it. Big time. Dates and the albums first two tracks below.

  1. I did wonder what KK was up to – I play the King Khan & BBQ LP a fair bit.

    • This new one is fantastic. I like KK and BBQ as well but I just can’t get over how addictive this one is. A must own!
