The Kid aren't concerned with petty meanings, they want the consequences, the mixed emotions and the ultra-highs. They pin down that word by it's strictest definition and force it to perform, reward and pay out. They make it dance until it smiles, spin until it laughs and I find myself selfishly joining in; foot-tapping, hands beating and body twitching all over. They make me crave multi-colored lights, speakers as large as houses, and a chance to hold hands with that girl from a John Hughes movie. No problems, no worries; everything is magically washed away, except that moment between you and her and an empty dance floor. " - Souls on tape.net "The Kid's sophomore album, Transient Blood. This is BBBD's first time listening to the Gothenburg quartet, but boy are they good. Imagine Sambassadeur merged with New Order circa 1987. The Swedes have a penchant for churning out tracks with heavy, super-catchy bass lines, playful synth riffs, and rhythm guitar parts that sound so in motion, so fresh and not boring like rhythm guitar tends to be. And the Kid does it best. The first single off the record, "Transient Dance," is a stunning jam that's reminiscent of cutesy European exports like Bonnie & Clyde and more recent New Order cuts like "Krafty. " It's charming beyond belief, and the rest of the release holds muster well. Transient Blood is out now, and you must purchase it if you hope to have an enjoyable summer... or if you're looking for that perfect soundtrack for a house party, BBQ, whatever. It'll work.
