"Kiss Kiss Kill Kill"

(Hellcat Records)

It is fitting that Horrorpops’ latest arrives on Hellcat Records because a hellcat is the most dead-on way of describing singer Patricia Day whose firey, attitude-infused vocal chops make this LP what it is. Kiss Kiss Kill Kill erupts with a fun and energetic intensity with "Thelma & Louise," a track whose title and subject matter could have easily fallen into kitschy terrain in the hands of a less competent group. But Horrorpops know their music like they know their tattoos, intimately. "Boot to Boot" is a stand-out, inciting the audience to frolic and riot wherever their black little hearts take them. There is enough pizzazz here for twenty albums and enough left over to power a big rig.

 

The titular joint takes a unique detour from the rest of the songs, leading us off into a moody realm where the wind is in your metaphorical hair and you can feel the horsepower in your balls. Day howls orgasmically throughout, calling to mind every autoerotic impulse that’s ever throbbed on a midnight roadtrip.

 

"Kiss Kiss Kill Kill" is a remarkably cohesive package of spunky, salacious and serpentine offerings from a Spartan band of musical superheroes. Their treatment of cinematic material is handled with the precision other bands reserve for their stage costumes and pyrotechnics. Everything on here glimmers and smacks of speed and strength. The first genuinely exciting album of 2008.—Bob Freville
