FROM THE STACKS: Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds


By Cassie Marketos

We get a lot of crap CDs at the self-titled offices. But once in a while, a pleasant surprise slips into our promo stack. Here’s a recent delivery that knocked the S/T staff on its collective ass.

Kid Congo & the Pink Monkey Birds

Album: Dracula Boots (In the Red)

RIYL: The idea of Nick Cave starring in action films; clouds of stuff (smoke, hair, colors); listening to your cousin’s band practicing in the basement, if it were 1972 and he always wore paisley
