One of the best albums this year might be one you have yet to hear from Louisville’s Kaleidico, but you won’t have to wait long. On May 26th, they will be releasing their sophomore LP, titled Zoetic, digitally. For those not familiar, the band started off as a bedroom project of Matt Moore, only to add Chris Johnson, Evan Grulke, Justin Chodniecki to allow the songs to be played live. Without sounding hyperbolic, the sound refrences the experimental percussion and electronic elements of later Radiohead done in a downtempo or ambient fashion and a side of folk. Vocally, Moore’s vocals carry across in a similar manner to Ed Droste of Grizzly Bear.
To introduce this next chapter of the project, we have the first song from the album for you to experience, “Hands We’d Have to Shake”. Moore says of the song, “I wrote “Hands We’d have to Shake” during a long stretch of unsuccessful job interviews. It deals with taking on the responsibilities that you know are expected of you, when all you want is to enjoy the isolation and comfort of home.” Stream and download it below.
