K-X-P (SF, Smalltown Supersound)
LAFIDKI (FR, Steak au zoo records)
K-X-P is a drums/bass/synth trio from Helsinki, Finland, and the latest signing on Smalltown Supersound. Born out of the fire and ashes of the seminal Op:l Bastards and And The Lefthanded, Smalltown Supersound happened to hear some demos from a new project led by Timo Kaukolampi (of both mentioned bands).
K-X-P mixes electronics, kraut, noise, rock and even rockabilly into a hypnotic and minimalistic motorik groove with references to bands like Spacemen 3, This Heat, 23 Skiddo, Suicide and Neu!. The band themselves name Raymond Scott, Moondog & Martin Rev as inspirations while making this album. When asked how Finland and Helsinki has influence the band`s sound they answer “Finland & Helsinki were fashionable 10 years ago, as was the notion of finnish “weirdness” Finland is not weird. Internet is weird. We are Finns.” Draw your own conclusions.
