Black Brown Green Grey White by Kes Trio





MIST041 BLACK BROWN GREEN GREY WHITE by KES TRIO

Black Brown Green Grey White is the stunning new album by Kes Band’s latest incarnation as a trio featuring Kes (Karl Scullin), Lehmann B Smith and Julian Patterson. Recorded by Nao Anzai, Black Brown Green Grey White is a yin-yang dichotomy, juxtaposing contemplative, melodic beauty and inward-gazing ballads with jerky dischord, banshee yells and whirlwind anti-rock riffs.

“Karl Scullin is a genius. A dead set, one off. His main musical obsession, Kes Band, have produced four varied, weird, always wild records. And, as the Kes Trio, he’s pulled off his best yet. This is widescreen music… One of the local releases of the year.”
– RHYTHMS MAGAZINE

“One of the most exciting, progressive pop-rock acts going around in this big brown dust bowl” TWO THOUSAND

“A chameleon whose every transformation somehow feels as perfect and true as the last”CITYSEARCH

Kes Band II by Kes Band





MIST032 KES BAND II
by KES BAND

Kes Band II is an all-instrumental album which reveals some resonant, exploratory dimensions of Melbourne’s much acclaimed Kes Band. Voiceless lyricism and a flair for the transcendental, richly beautiful string arrangements and delicate playing reverberate with almost visual joy and sorrow. Kes Band II is at once an intriguing mood piece of strangely moving atmospheric music that sweeps through and around the listener; it is also a dense slice of rewarding cerebral music, full of fertile ideas which reveal and fulfill themselves over time.

“Wordlessly stunning. Although the spectre of the Dirty Three hangs over the album (Biddy Connor’s violin is more elegant than ferocious), there is so much beauty on display, so much space and atmosphere, so much complexity and grace, that it is truly a record in its own class” – THE SUNDAY AGE **** four stars

MIST017 KES BAND
by KES BAND

The extraordinary Kes Band album was recorded by James Cecil of Architecture in Helsinki fame in his Super Melody World studio. Kes Band is a stupendous leap forward from “The Grey Goose Wing”, with the same adventurous spirit but with a more concise and accessible pop sensibility. Deluxe digipak format.

“Kes Band is the work of a deeply idiosyncratic songwriter who is nonetheless maturing rapidly. There are moments of daft pleasure succeeded by passages of moving instrumentation. The album has a framework but it’s one that requires repeated listens to define and comprehend. Once you do, its appeal becomes tangible.” – SYDNEY MORNING HERALD feature album
