The Kiss Offs

Goodbye Private Life

Peek-a-Boo

What year is this? The Kiss Offs mix my favorite elements of Devo, the B-52s and the Violent Femmes to come up with a disc that’s the sonic equivalent of scuffing your feet on the carpet and grabbing that metal doorknob. Decidedly riff-centric, the band obligingly sets up a drums/guitar/bass/organ loop (usually pretty manic) and then lets loose their vocalists, male and female, to nicely round out the package. Rump-shaking to the extreme, and a hell of a lot of fun. Twisted sense of humor, too.

Back in 2018, Lily and Generoso selected Adirley Queirós’s Once There Was Brasilia as a top ten film. That feature’s cinematographer, Joana Pimenta, has now co-directed with Queirós one of the most expansive political films we’ve seen this year, Dry Ground Burning. Lily and Generoso interviewed Pimenta at AFI Fest earlier this month.
