Kaki King: Dreaming of Revenge

Kaki King is one hell of an acoustic guitar player. On her new album she ups the ante with deceptive soft spoken lyrics about lovers who pissed her off. Her forte are the instrumentals, like Bone Chaos in the Castle, the opening track of her forthcoming labum Dreaming of Revenge. This is the kind of music Mike Oldfield has been trying to come up with for the last twenty years or so.

Add pedal-steel and horns to the mix and you end up with a cognoscenti album that may ship lots of units.

Dreaming of Revenge is released on Velour Music. Release date: March 11.
