I was researching to see if any band had covered Captain Beefheart's "sure nuff n yes i do" when I came across an article listing the song as one of the Kills favorites. This is how I discovered the Kills put out a new album "blood pressures".  I'm completely addicted to the first song "future starts slow" (who cares if it's a drum machine!).  As for the rest of the album. . . it's okay.  There are always a couple songs on each album that I'm crazy about. . .and the rest are okay.  Let's call these pepper bands, you know, where you only need a couple flakes to flavor your playlist.  I want to be mad about all their music because they seem like a band you should be mad about, but I'm still waiting for an album I can play all the way through.  To their credit, it's a major accomplishment to write just one song people love, I couldn't do it.  Given that they've put out 4 albums and there's always a song or two on each album that ROCKS, I'd say they're doing much better than most bands.  I'm holding on because I think their best is yet to come.
