KEN KASE - “Ken Kase”
MUSIC FARMER 5 - Review by Wolf Georgia
An Epic Fusion of Vintage and Vanguard
In his latest self-titled EP, Ken Kase orchestrates a symphonic journey that transcends time and genre, artfully weaving the soul of '60s rock with the finesse of modern indie soundscapes.
The EP commences with "Entitled," a masterpiece reminiscent of The Beatles, yet distinctly Kase. Its rich, groovy vocal harmonies are a tapestry woven with threads of Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young’s legacy, culminating in a bridge that soars into a celestial realm, akin to the harmonious wonders of the Beach Boys. The track concludes with an impassioned jam session, where organs and guitars cry out in a melodious uproar, only to halt abruptly, echoing the song's title in a thoughtful, introspective pause.
"Quality Control" presents a delightful contrast, bursting with the exuberance of '90s pop anthems, evoking the spirited charm of Barenaked Ladies. Its enchanting chord progression, intertwined with the playful dance of guitar and synth, creates a hook that is both euphoric and hauntingly memorable.
