Kino Kimino is touring this May and June with Wavves in support of her debut LP, Bait is for Sissies, that’s out now on Ghost Ramp Records.
From the snowy wilds of Manitoba, Kino Kimino landed in New York City, headed across the river to Hoboken and plugged in with half of Sonic Youth to throw down the ten sweetly serrated, sometimes volatile, post-punk songs comprising new album Bait Is for Sissies.
Some other things happened in between, it’s true, but the outline holds: Kino Kimino mastermind Kim Talon is a native of Winnipeg, and the singer and guitarist has since relocated to New York, after a few stops along the way. She recorded Bait Is for Sissies at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio, with Lee Ranaldo on guitar and Steve Shelley on drums, along with Melinda Holm on bass. Talon met Ranaldo and Shelley through John Agnello (Dinosaur Jr., Kurt Vile), who produced.
