Listen: Cinders (Live) / Matt & Kim MattKImCindersLive.mp3
‘Cinders’ may be to this millennium what Hot Butter’s ‘Popcorn’ was to the last. Yet with all the open mindedness in today’s society, I can guarantee you it doesn’t spill over to radio programming. Don’t expect to hear ‘Cinders’ on a pop station anytime soon. A great session for KCRW captured the manic mayhem of ‘Cinders’ live, making for a perfect B side.
As for the A side, ‘Lessons Learned’, a mini symphony and the best video of the year, all at once. I’m probably the last person on earth to be writing about this clip – but I had to wait until there was an actual 7″ single, which thankfully now exists.
