Kickstand

Kickstand

More Than Meets the Eye

When I first noticed that there was a new release from Kickstand, I was hoping that it was the same Kickstand who released a great CD (coincidentally, it was also self-titled) full of Young Marble Giants-flavored pop (it even included some YMG covers) a few years back. Alas, this is a different band also called Kickstand and they aren’t nearly as good. On this five-song EP, the band yawns its way through some bland, insipid, three-chord rockers that sound like really bad B-side leftovers from The Church, or maybe Let’s Active. How very disappointing.

Lily and Generoso enjoyed an in-depth conversation with Citarella about Trenque Lauquen when it screened at AFI Fest 2022.

Join us for a new edition of New Music Now, with our special musical guest, Sleepyhead. All three members of the band are school teachers, so you didn’t hear it from us, but there might be a pop quiz about their album New Alchemy after the show.

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.
