Kiss Of Kali

LP (Item 937185) Infracom (Germany), 2008 — Condition: Near Mint-
2LP
Also available
Mop Mop — Kiss Of Kali ... LP 26.99

Jazzy grooves from Mop Mop – a set that we like even more than their hip first album, and which is filled with great work from a variety of different musicians! The vibe here is a lot more acoustic than the last time around, although the sound moves past the straighter style of club jazz – with lots of repeated elements that circulate throughout the tunes, creating a hypnotic groove that really stands out on the best tracks. Other numbers have a snapping, almost swing-based take on jazz – mixing things up nicely past the more modal moments you might expect – and most numbers feature some sort of vocals, sung by Alan Farrington on some of our favorite numbers, who we loved in his work with the Andrea Pozza trio. Instrumentation includes keyboards, vibes, alto, baritone sax, bass clarinet, and lots of warm acoustic bass – and titles include "Soul Call", "Crunk", "I Wish I Was In Hell", "Living Beat", "Locomotive", "The Lowered Flag", "Jazzdancer", and "Last Trip".  © 1996-2020, Dusty Groove, Inc.

Near Mint - (minus)

  • Black vinyl that may show a slight amount of dust or dirt.
  • Should still be very shiny under a light, even with slight amount of dust on surface.
  • One or two small marks that would make an otherwise near perfect record slightly less so. These marks cannot be too deep, and should only be surface marks that won't affect play, but might detract from the looks.
  • May have some flaws and discoloration in the vinyl, but only those that would be intrinsic to the pressing. These should disappear when the record is tilted under the light, and will only show up when looking straight at the record. (Buddah and ABC pressings from the 70's are a good example of this.)
  • May have some slight marks from aging of the paper sleeve on the vinyl.
  • Possible minor surface noise when played.

Additional Marks & Notes

If something is noteworthy, we try to note it in the comments — especially if it is an oddity that is the only wrong thing about the record. This might include, but isn't limited to, warped records, tracks that skip, cover damage or wear as noted above, or strictly cosmetic flaws.
