June 3 street date. Vancouver quartet Kamikaze Nurse’s evocative integration of melody and noise, along with their interests in poetry, film, and literature, creates a narrative world in which the songs grow to have their own internal logic, reaching beyond genres and conventions. In 2020, amidst the first wave of the pandemic, the band self-recorded the instruments for their sophomore album, Stimuloso, at their jam space over the course of 6 months. Vocals were completed at Raincity Recorders over a weekend, and the album was mixed by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), who gave Stimuloso its swagger and tooth. While the band’s first record, Bucky Fleur, established their sound as defiant, fiery, and fierce, Stimuloso takes risks in writerly compositions and playful introspection. This record is a modern classic, showcasing loud, atmospheric rock music that will be well-liked by fans of shoegaze and post-punk acts such as My Bloody Valentine, Sonic Youth, The Pixies, as well as more contemporary bands like Dummy, METZ, New Fries, or Deafheaven.
