Two years ago Steve Kimock spent a winter’s retreat in a barn with lots of acoustic guitars and an engineer making Last Danger of Frost. To present this new music on tour, he created KIMOCK, with his son John Morgan Kimock on drums, vocalist and multi-instrumentalist Leslie Mendelson, and old mate Bobby Vega on bass. In the process they found themselves inspired to write lots more songs, which gives us Satellite City, which will be released October 27th.
They went into Bob Weir’s TRI studios with producer Dave Schools of Widespread Panic and laid down nine tracks -- the title song, which sets Kimock’s splendid guitar against Leslie Mendelson’s beautiful voice in a mystical dream state, a lovely cover of “Waiting for a Miracle,” and seven more originals.
They’ll hit the road to support the album on November 1st (see below).
Here’s the first response:
I first heard Leslie Mendelson doing "Satellite City" live with Steve Kimock last year, and I've been hoping for an album track ever since. I finally got my wish, and it's worth the wait. This is wonderful stuff.
