Mama K and the Shades - Honey Made
Review by Gary Hill
This feels in a lot of ways like it could have come out of the 1970s. The horn-soaked fusion on this disc is classic stuff.

Matthew K - Matthew K
Review by Gary Hill
This is probably closest to something like Billy Joel.

More
Kachinga - Balance (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill

This is the first of two singles I've reviewed for this issue from this artist. Kachinga hails from Ontario, Canada and is a hip hop artist.


More
Kachinga - New York (digital single)
Review by Gary Hill

This is a new hip hop single from a Canadian artist. It's an intriguing piece with some unusual sonic concepts.


More
Kalo - Wild Change
Review by Gary Hill
This album is classy and classic. The sound is built on blues and rock and Americana.

More
Keez - Water Creatures
Review by Gary Hill
There is quite an unusual mix of sounds here.

More
Kelakos - Uncorked – Rare Tracks from a Vintage 70s Band
Review by Gary Hill
This collection of rare tracks from an act I’ve not previously heard is solid.

More
Ranzel X Kendrick - Texas Paintbrush
Review by Gary Hill

This is based heavily on roots music. It's of the stripped down, intimate variety, though.


More
Ranzel X Kendrick - Texas Sagebrush
Review by Gary Hill

I reviewed another disc from this artist in the last issue of Music Street Journal. This set is a bit less diverse than the other one.


More
Joshua Ketchmark - Under Plastic Stars
Review by Gary Hill

Sometimes less can be more. I think that if there were maybe two or three less songs on this album it would be stronger.


More
Joshua Ketchmark - The Misses
Review by Gary Hill

If you understand what this is, it's a very solid release.


More
Stefanie Keys - Open Road
Review by Gary Hill
I like this album quite a bit. Stefanie Kyes has a great classic voice. She's also got a good range in terms of moods conveyed.

More
Keyser Soze - The Remedy
Review by Gary Hill
This is great. It feels quite retro in a lot of ways, but there are modern elements here, too.

More
Keznadmi - Bridging the Gap EP
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve always been a big fan of reggae. I loved Bob Marley.

More
Kicklighter - The Fascinating Thinking Machine
Review by Gary Hill
I like this set a lot. Not everything here is great, but a lot of it is.

More
Killing Joke - Pylon
Review by Mike Korn
Having been in existence since 1978, Killing Joke has seen the birth of many styles of music.

More
Tom Killner - Hard Road
Review by Gary Hill
This is an album by a blues guitar player who has been building quite a reputation for himself.

More
Tom Killner - Live
Review by Gary Hill

Classic rock and blues are the order of business here. These guys do such a great job of revisiting this music.


More
Bobby Kimball - We're Not in Kansas Anymore
Review by Gary Hill
The title to this album is a clever nod to Bobby Kimball's history. Kimball first rose to wide attention as the original lead singer in Toto.

More
King Prawn - Surrender to the Blender
Review by Gary Hill
This CD is very intriguing. The styles that this band blends together make for a very unusual mix.
More
King's X - Ogre Tones
Review by Josh Turner
This has the angst-ridden riffs they're famous for as well as majestic melodies in the vein of The Beatles. There's no doubt as to where they're from or whose been influencing them lately.
More
Rod Kinny - Forces of Nature
Review by Gary Hill
The sounds on this disc are quite classic. In some ways this reminds me of the rock end of The Bee Gees work.

More
Kiss - Symphony:Alive IV
Review by Patrick Hennen
This is the fourth installment of the Kiss Alive series. The first Alive, which was recorded in Detroit Michigan takes us back to 1975.
More
Kiss - Music From The Elder
Review by Gary Hill
When it was recorded in 1981, this album was to have been a masterwork of epic proportions. A concept album with serious prog leanings, early preview copies of the album received poor reviews.
More
Kiss - Psycho Circus
Review by Gary Hill
The first studio album from the reunited classic Kiss lineup, Psycho Circus is a respectable and entertaining release that seems to strive to combine the older Kiss sound with newer leanings.
More
KKB - Got to Get Back
Review by Gary Hill
The name of this group is a combination of the last initial of each member of the group.

More
Klassik - Winter EP
Review by Gary Hill
I’ve reviewed something from this act before, and enjoyed it. I like this three song EP a lot, too.

More
Klassik - Spring
Review by Gary Hill
Klassik is releasing these season themed EPs. .

More
Klassik - Summer
Review by Gary Hill
The latest in the seasonal series of EPs from rapper Klassik, this has some good stuff, but also some moments that feel awkward.

More
Jann Klose - Mosaic
Review by Gary Hill
I have to say the one thing that sells this disc more than anything is Jann Klose’s voice. He’s got a great voice and he knows how to use it.

More
Jann Klose - In Tandem
Review by Gary Hill

Jann Klose produces consistently strong music. His songwriting is always effective, but for me his voice is the real winning element.


More
KMFDM - WWIII
Review by Mike Korn
KMFDM have been hovering around the edges of my musical awareness for a decade now. I knew who they were and I sure noticed all the goth/punk kids wearing their distinctive cartoony T-shirts but I never bothered to listen to them.

More
Nikhil Korula - Solo Sessions
Review by Gary Hill
This is quite a good disc. The music has a real Dave Matthews vibe a lot of the time.

More
Kosmic Horrör - Zarkov Protocols Vol. 1
Review by Gary Hill
This is probably a first - I'm willing to bet you've never read a review of Klingon music before. Well, that's exactly what this is.
More
Lenny Kravitz - Lenny
Review by Gary Hill
Lenny Kravitz is a very talented musician, make no mistake. He, like only a handful of artists, records his albums almost completely unassisted.
More
Lenny Kravitz - Greatest Hits - Limited Tour Edition CD and DVD
Review by Gary Hill
Released to coincide with his tour, this is a somewhat expanded version of the Greatest Hits disc released in 2000. It has two new tracks added, "Dig In" and "Where are We Runnin'?" and a couple songs have been moved around.
More
Pete Kronowitt - A Lone Voice
Review by Gary Hill
This an effective set. The music lands in the singer/songwriter, folk meets country and rock range of sounds.
