Kino Kimino
Drops “Passion” Video w/ Stereogum Today

Bait Is for Sissies ft. Members of Sonic Youth, 
Out Now on Wavves’ Label Ghost Ramp


"The scuzzy distortion on the guitars, the rolling drums, and Kino Kimono's sharply angled vocals all smack of jittery dissatisfaction and 90s musical tropes." VICE’s Noisey
“[Caste Out] is blistering fun with loosely strummed guitar lines, quick rolling drum transitions and that melts into a slow churning, menacing trip, and ends on a bright guitar line. The switches happen at inopportune moments and keep the ear guessing through delightful abruptness.” Stereogum
Receiving accolades from PitchforkFADERNoiseySPINImpose and more, the debut Kino Kimino album Bait Is for Sissies was released June 3 onWavves’ label Ghost Ramp. Fresh from a smashing international tour,Stereogum has unveiled the video for breakout album single “Passion”today.

Kino Kimino is the brainchild of Kim Talon who plugged in with Lee Ranaldoand Steve Shelley of Sonic Youth. The ten sweetly serrated, sometimes volatile, post-punk songs on debut album Bait Is for Sissies was produced by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr., Hop Along) and recorded at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio. The songs explore betrayal, violence and the feeling of being an outsider, a dramatized response to the end of a romantic relationship that was founded on deceit. Talon has toured with Siaand played with Deerhoof and Blake Schwarzenbach of ’90s emo standoutsJawbreaker.
