Usually I do the describing around these parts, but Kula, a quartet out of LA, pretty much summed up themselves in their bio to where my words are pretty damn trivial:
Kula is a swirling vortex of savage sound, creative eureka, palpable passion, attention to abstraction, unbridled quintessence, casual delirium, and resplendent reciprocity.Oh. There's more.
Kula is a truly unique and talented group striving for a rock revival. Original music fueled by raw emotion and the love of creation. Diverse rhythms drive progressive compositions, giving power to the soul-filled vocals that simultaneously fill a room and whisper in your ear. It's like King Crimson backed by Sheila E. and fronted by the lovechild of Robert Plant and Diana Ross.Boom.
Do I even need to elaborate further? Okay, okay, since you love me so much, I'll throw in that Kula ain't tossing around fibs, their self-titled EP is electric and eclectic rock n' rolla that feels vintage, but is briskly new, and boy oh boy does it grind. Not since The Preatures have I've been excited for some good ol' guitar rock to come back to prominence, and well, Kula have hit the spot with their four-tracker that has such highlights like "Inside Out" and "Mothership". Still what more can I say? The experience is in the music, so I'll now just fully step aside and let Kula's sound do the rest of the talking, because you'll want to hear everything they're saying.
