Nihilist loves nothing more than that special time when you listen to an album, knowing little about it and it turns out to be simply whopper! All 2 of us here at Nihilist enjoyed that abstract pleasure in 2009 with the release of Kylesa's 'Static Tensions'. This post-sludge piece of wonderfulness features twin drummers, twin guitars and a production to die for (excuse the drama, I just sat through an entire Sex in the City). I'll avoid saying much about the fact that there's a girl in the band, admittedly a rarity in the sludge world, anyway, Steve can tell you all about guitarist and singer Laura Pleasants. Ask him about when we were at Kyuss Lives and he missed Laura dancing in the wings with Electric Wizard's Liz Buckingham!
You Should Be Listening To... Kylesa!
