King Khan & the Shrines

DAVE CANTOR
9 pm, Thursday June 26 | $13.
Star Theater
13 NW 6th Ave.
 

[FUNK’N’SOUL] The multicultural whirlwind that is King Khan has so slyly insinuated funk and soul into the sleazy garage rock that he came up on it’s mystifying. Since taking a break from his collaboration with BBQ (a.k.a. Mark Sultan) a few years back, the Shrines have become the prime outlet for KK’s fascination with the 1960s. Blanketing his big-band proclivities are lyrically obtuse stories about this awful world. Orchestration, as presented on last year’s Idle No More, shields listeners from some of the fouler moments, but that just makes the entire project seem more genuinely ripped from ’60s tumult.
