Brooklyn’s Kung Fu Crimewave seems to not want to follow any trends. Abnormal, strange, ethereal pop songs are nothing new, but there’s an interesting vibe to these tracks, with severe anger bubbling right under the surface. There are a lot of extra instruments here, including keyboards and horns, plus the female backing vocals are mixed high. Also, the cassette is on the pro end of tapes, came shrink-wrapped, and includes a download card. There are probably eight big fans of Kung Fu Crimewave, but I’d like to shake their presumably existent hands.
