[RIFF ROCK, NOW WITH LYRICS] It’s been six years between drinks for Seattle rock veterans Kinski (assuming the band only drinks when it puts out a new album), and a few changes have taken place in the intervening period. For one, the band left Sub Pop and has just released its first album on Kill Rock Stars. For two, the new disc, Cosy Moments, marks a pointed sonic shift for the four-piece—from psychedelic noise rock to a far more pop-oriented sound. The crunchy riffs, sludgy bass and guitar freakouts are still there, but songs are shorter, more traditional in structure and—where previous records were almost entirely instrumental—there are actual vocals on most of the tracks. And those vocals are great. Lead single “Conflict Free Diamonds” sounds like the kind of garage gem that might have come out of Seattle 20 years ago, with a glorious fuzzy hook and guitarist Chris Martin displaying some surprisingly tuneful pipes.
