King Chro & The Talismen
"King Chro & The Talismen"
You can catch these cats on stage at this year's Corn Hill Arts Festival, unless you read this, drop everything you're doing, and decide to right away pick up King Chro & The Talismen's self-titled helping of bombastic polyrhythmic boogie and bop right. Play it loud, but hold onto your spine.
This Oswego band packs in a lot of groove with some interestingly percussive and bluesy guitar (where the rough-hewn guitar chop of the left hand emits focused notes into the air in fiery bursts and blasts) and the vocals pair up as a sort of gang vocals rather than simple harmony. Although I recommended you get the lead out and see them or pick up the CD with a quickness, don't sweat it because King Chro & The Talismen are gonna be around for a while. I got a feeling...
