- Kill Rock Stars
Seattle hard-rock fixtures Kinski offer a sneak peek from their forthcoming album on Kill Rock Stars, Cosy Moments. Coming out April 2, it's their first full-length since 2007's Down Below It's Chaos on Sub Pop. "Conflict Free Diamonds" bears Kinski's trademark meaty riffage and powerful rhythmic undertow, but in an uncharacteristic move for this largely instrumental band, Chris Martin delivers some passionate vocals. "Conflict Free Diamonds" is definitely one of Kinski's most accessible songs, but it still chomps with tungsten teeth. You can hear it at mtvhive.com.
