King Khan & the Shrines

Add Date: June 24

Artist: King Khan & the Shrines

Album: The Supreme Genius Of...

Label: Vice

Genre: Garage rock, psychedelic rock, soul

Comments: This is a best-of collection from Montreal's underground sensation, King Khan & the Shrines. Excellent garage rock with elements of '60s psychedelia, jazz and soul; the 11-man band's horns and organ nicely complement the guitars and percussion. For fans of the Black Lips, whose Jared Swilley writes a glowing, Sal Paradise-like intro to the band that's included on the inside cover of the CD. Check out the recommended tracks from the promoter.
