The first song from the debut EP from Kimono Kult, the new project featuring former Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante and Mars Volta's Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, is streaming online. You can check out "Todo Menos El Dolor" below.
Kimono Kult's debut EP is titled "Hiding in the Light" and is due for release on March 4th. As their Soundcloud page states, the band's "initiates include current and ex-members of Mars Volta, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Bosnian Rainbows, Swahili Blonde, Le Butcherettes, Dante Vs. Zombies, and Raw Geronimo - all who are adamant that this is not some 'all-star' vanity project."
The page goes on to note that the band "synthesizes all the signature styles and influences from a cream of crop wrecking crew she has at her immediate grasp. Vocally fronted by the untamable Teri Gender Bender (Le Butcherettes, Bosnian Rainbows) their debut EP 'Hiding in the Light' are four songs of electro/dub/afro-beat/avant-freak/jazz-like conversations of instrumental ecstasy."
