[Above: Free Kitten]
Kim Gordon, Julie Cafritz and Yoshimi together in the same room might mean pure sex, but that still doesn't explain why a google search for “Free Kitten” invariably ends up with porn. But this is momentous news, Inherit will be the first new Free Kitten album in over a decade — and now with “guest guitar work” by J. Mascis. Holy crap. The amount of cred in that list could taser a fanboy from fifty yards.
And yet, we can forgive google for misreading our best intentions. Just look at all the ways you can parse this phrase. We're not talking about a free Kitten CD
or, a Free-Kitten CD
or, a Freak Hittin' CD
nor does it imply a form of avant jazz
nor is it about free kittens
Nor is it free. (At least until it hits piratebay, NOT THAT WE WOULD EVER CONDONE SUCH A THING.)
Inherit will be released by Ecstatic Peace on May 20. This is eleven tracks, one over 10 minutes and one skirting eight, of pure indie anticipation.
