Rising Doom :: Kal.Kal Explores New Ground With ‘Cliff’ Single

artworks-000574900166-nja72x-t500x500

Kal.Kal is back at it again, this time getting heavy in the studio putting together his upcoming project (a Doom Patrol-themed instrumental album).  The first single, Cliff, finds us deep in Kal.Kal‘s signature textured rhythms, but this time the sound has a much heavier and industrial feel to it.  Add to this mixture the guitar-work of Alcoda, and a crazy cover by Ozymandias’ Dream, and you’ve got a lasting first impression for what promises to be a wonderful sonic departure by Kal.Kal.  Definitely leave a comment on this track and share it around so others can bask in this sonic goodness.

Inspired Intertextuality :: Kal.Kal And Alcoda Combine For ‘The Authoritative Kal.Kal. And Alcoda’

a1451261378_10

There’s something special about inspiration and homage in the creative world that can inform an artist in ways that result in beautiful creations.  I’m not sure what has caused the recent spike in style influenced by the old comic strips of Calvin & Hobbes (honestly, my love for the strip has never waned), but the results have been some of the most wonderfully forward thinking yet nostalgia-inducing projects of late.  One of the latest is the mesmerizing The Authoritative Kal.Kal and Alcoda, a collection of downtempo gems from producers Kal.Kal and Alcoda (with a lovely album cover by De’Angelo Galvan).  Grab your favorite Calvin & Hobbes anthology, your headphones, and dive headfirst into this one.
