The Kinetiks new album "Science is Magic" is a bricoleur’s rock and roll manifesto. Recorded and mixed by Stuart Sullivan (of Meat Puppets fame), the album is a carnival ride of disco, '80s pop-punk, and darker '90s themes. It's a fun, synth-filled distortion fest that channels a Pixies-esque modulation between loud and soft. The melodies are as contagiously idiosyncratic as the music is straightforward — everything centers on Spencer Goertz-Giffen’s range of vivid vocal personas and penetrating electric guitar work.
