THE KALEIDOSCOPE KID RELEASES A POWERFUL MOVEMENT OF GENRE BENDING SOUNDS: NOTHING IS FOR FREE
Prolific Phoenix-based musician The Kaleidoscope Kid has delivered one hell of an album, again! This young man has been through it endured and overcome obstacles such as an autoimmune disease but found his own way through holistic healing and music. Music became his source of healing and creating one of the best albums I have ever experienced.
Kaleidoscope states, “Writing music for me is medicine, through my own growth, self-acceptance, and healing. I can learn to be there better for myself and others and show up fully to life. There is a magic to any creation but for me writing music has been a way to alchemize even the most difficult moments of my life and turn them into something beautiful.”
Kaleidoscope pulls us through his journey in life. The album kicks off with the track, “Bite the Bullet”, lyrics are deeply sensational blended punk, and alt. rock it’s too good! It’s got that 90’s rock reminiscent of psychedelic grunge the entire
album is banging! It is hard to compare this quite original sound, but you can feel those elements of Beck, or Cage the Elephant, or Sublime. The second track, “Hollywood Funeral” feels like a story of addiction and falling down that rabbit whole. The beauty of Hollywood and yet the dark tale told by many about drugs leading to their demise. 12 tracks on this album lead you down to different places. The music, visualistic in nature, dark and gutsy alluring to your soul. “Death By Radio” another track tells the story of California dreams and but then spiraling. Up-tempo climax hits sections in the song, it’s catchy and addictive. “Cut Me Loose” and more tracks are inquisitive and the artist is actually telling his
story of pain, and pleasure. It’s real and raw, it’s about time we had an album like this.
