BLK JKS – Mystery


If you’ve ever wondered what Sonic Youth might sound like if they decided to cover TV On The Radio then you should probably try this out. BLK JKS are a curious little band out of Johannesburg, South Africa who I don’t really know too much about. The sounds of their homeland are infused throughout this four track EP which I think is a really good introduction the band. This EP is a pretty engaging listen due to the styles that are crammed in throughout its duration, ranging from noise rock to ambient swathes of feedback to psychedelic freak outs all within the same song without ever sounding forced or awkward, an achievement in itself. They seem to be building a bit of buzz since they started touring overseas and I think it’s fair to say that they could become quite popular, with gigs throughout the US booked for the summer.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
