Kicking giant is dead, the parking lot is on fire

"kicking giant, rip, were a special band. one that could combine the catchiness and primitive power of indie pop with all that is great about early punk and (to an extent) noise. playing drums with staples (or so i've read, i was too young to see them live) and using feedback. sometimes ventruing into 50's pop lalala endings.kg is tae won yu, the boy half of kicking giant, doing his solo thing. it sounds like what kicking giant might have become if they never released "alien id" and started listening to the occasional dub record. quiet, spacious sounds. like 13.13.13 on "halo" maybe? at times jangly, at times hollow. tae's voice seems urgent when you here him sing about how he's afraid he'll have to hurt some one. this album is best played at 3 am when the lights are off and you can't go to sleep, even though you have to be up at 6am."
