Weekly Poll
Do you buy art?

Buy? Man, you can’t put a price tag on art.
My home is filled with many fine paintings and antiquities.
I support what I can, but I’m on a limited budget.
Um … I’m actually still dodging my kid’s requests to pony up for a finger painting on the fridge.

About:
KINCH is not afraid to be somewhat intellectual: the band's name comes from a James Joyce novel and one of its songs is called "Rudimentary Knowledge." But neither do they try and avoid being "popsy"; the lyrics fit themselves into the melody rather than being background noise to some sort of earnest and philosophic stream of consciousness that delights its authors by confusing its audience. The result is that the sense arrives after the sound, but in addition to providing several songs whose lyrics have a "Love-Love-Me-Do" simplicity (with a lot of descents into inarticulate "la's"), KINCH also has quite a few that actually become more pleasurable after one knows what the singer is saying because the lyrics introduce engaging word choice in a medium as full of clichés as it is of pelvic thrusts. The sound of KINCH is a unique stew of familiar flavors. Weezer, The Pixies, Radiohead, Blur, Coldplay, and others can all be said to have leant something to the pot. The sum of KINCH’S sound, however, is distinct from its parts. KINCH is its own sound… a whole lot of its own sound, in fact, judging by their song catalogue.
