In the magical summer of 2009, I wrote about why I loved the Fancy Man rock of Princeton. Now it's the early fall of 2010, and I'm listening to the newest project by member (heh) Jesse Kivel, Kisses.
I don't know what sort of person names their musical project Kisses, and to be quite honest, I'm not sure what sort of person listens to Kisses. Because if I had to make a comparison, I'd say “Kisses sounds a lot like Princeton, except if Princeton was on DFA.” I'd also say “Kisses will probably appeal to people who are far better looking than I am, and also folks that drive cars”. (Please note, this isn't the same thing as Commercial Core). This all leads me back to one thought:
“If I didn't like Princeton, would I give a shit about this?”
The answer is “maybe not,” but the fact still remains that I'm a fan of Princeton, and anything that sounds remotely like them appeals to me on some level.
With that said, I'm going to pour my girlfriend a glass of red wine, and attempt to put the moves on her while I play Kisses on repeat.
