Once again Ive found one that I cant really explain (funny how that goes), but I guess Ill try.
If you were to take blues, 1970s psychedelic rock, and electronic, throw it in some nasty crap and make sure it gets really dirty and messy and record it...you would get The Kills.
They fit the mold perfectly for bands Kurtis likes:
2 members CHECK!
1 male 1 female CHECK!
Something that even resembles a Blues influence CHECK!
I wont talk about them anymore though, Ill just let you listen.
