Frusciante, Rodriguez-Lopez Supergroup Streaming Debut Album
John Frusciante and Omar Rodriguez-Lopez are officially streaming the entire debut EP of their latest project Kimono Kult.

Released yesterday (March 4) via Neurotic Yell, "Hiding in the Light" is described as "four songs of electro/dub/afro-beat/avant-freak/jazz-like conversations of instrumental ecstasy." The songs are all in Spanish and delve heavily into the experimental domain.

Apart from former Red Hot Chili Peppers and Mars Volta guitarists, Kimono Kult consists of four additional musicians - guitarist/vocalist Teri Gender Bender, multi-instrumentalist Nicole Turley, Dante White-Aliano on guitar and synths and Laena Geronimo on bass, violin and trumpets. Turley was also in charge of production duties.

Chatting with Rolling Stone, Gender Bender discussed the language approach in more detail, saying, "The Spanish language is so beautiful that it has the right to be approached in any way possible. There is so much left to explore - pronunciation, etc. Because Spanish-speaking singers are strict with so many unspoken rules, I approached my mother language as if I were an alien from outer space. That was the mindset."

Make sure to check out the record in the player below (via Consequence of Sound) and share your thoughts in the comments.
