Mp3 of the Week: RIBS "Kiss" -- May 25 @ T.T. The Bear's Place

From the very first riff of RIBS’s rumbling new single “Kiss,” it doesn’t take long for the sonic seismograph to start tracing a zigzag across your headspace. The quartet’s first release since the one-two suckerpunch of last January’s atmospheric Locrian Singles, “Kiss” is a pure growler, a sledgehammer of a tune that wedges its way into your ears and sprawls across four eerie minutes, eventually striking a low-down choral groove that only serves to momentarily stop the song’s pounding ritual. “Kiss” is the fitting first-strike single off RIBS’ new Russian Blood EP -- a textured, modern hard-rock record that’s dark, meticulous, and crafted with a gunslinger’s precision. We rarely feel earthquakes here in Boston – 08.23.11, never forget – but RIBS will shake up T. T. The Bear’s next Friday, May 25, as they drip Russian Blood on a sterling rock bill alongside Connecticut rabble-rousers the Suicide Dolls and the mysterious Yoga Girls. Take cover by grabbing the “Kiss” mp3 below, and tune in to Boston Accents this Sunday at 8 pm when RIBS crash the WFNX studio in Lynn.
