Hi-hat heat

KRS drops the Gossip single "Standing in the Way of Control" from their LP to be released 1/24. It's been nudged away from the raucous, down-tuned, discolicious early version they toured with more than a year ago, but dammit if any other band can beckon this kind of rich sound from a single guitar, drum kit & voice (I guess it helps when the voice in question belongs to a vocal genius & human hurricane). Listen for Nathan's guitar line to go all Carrie Brownstein 3/4 of the way through--liquid downstroke eighth notes & slides, like guava nectar for yr parched throat.
