Product Description

The last release of 2016 on Drone Rock Records sees the welcome return of those young Argentinian psych-garage-rockers, Kill West. Their debut release, the Kill West EP, was also the debut release for Drone Rock Records and, following a recent change to their line-up, the new record brings with it a new sound. Shifting away from drone and fog they now deliver night-inflicted rock. Sharp and crisp yet bouncy and mantric, “Raw Desire” will be jointly released by Drone Rock Records (UK) and Crang Records (ARG).

This is going to be a pressing of 500 copies in total with 250 being sold here via Drone Rock Records and 250 sold via the band themselves and Crang Records in Argentina. As usual, of the copies I have available there will be two different versions:-

Black and white splatter on clear vinyl

125 copies on lovely clear vinyl with black and white splatter effect. As always these will be offered first to previous customers and the Drone Rock Records mailing list subscribers.

Pale Green vinyl

125 copies on pale green vinyl.

Kill West (MK II)

Hailing from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Kill West deliver a sound transcending their space time coordinate, creating a style not transfixed to any era or location.
They released their first record, The Kill West EP, on Drone Rock Records back in early 2015 and their very well received debut LP “Smoke Beach” (Crang/Echo Drug Recordings) followed a few months later. They gained great reviews from Drowned in Sound, The New York Times, and many more from all over the globe. The band have explored psychedelia in hazy and good vibed trips and drones. Their spontaneous blues riffing and long-scaled bass landscapes instantly drive you into trance.

Since the release of the Kill West EP the band have gone through a bit of a change of personnel going from a 5 piece to a 4 piece outfit and with new member Octavio coming in on drums. The band still know how to bring the noise.

Kill West is:

Martin Valentini – guitar

Joel Menazzi – bass

Franco Beceiro – guitar & vox

Octavio Bermejo Villareal – drums
