BANGS! EP Review: KB & The Idyllwilde I Just Wanna Love You, I Just Wanna Let You


Excuse me is this thing on? (pause) (feedback) Mic drop. Some like it rough and nasty, while others like it smooth and trashy so just what is that sound we are digging in the recesses of our brains??? Could it be a blend of the aforementioned and kicked back in a hot breathe? KB & the Idyllwilde is that shot glass of smooth that hits your throat with a burn and leaves your lungs with a rough edge. 


The video for "Madman" must be the living end of every episode of how ladies take care of cleaning their living rooms. After all the way to man's appetite is a bump and grind motion. "Drown" certainly leaves the same ejaculation of hot twist, while "The Right Kind of Sickness" shows this is the reincarnate of Tina and Ike- there is something betwixt the vocals on this one that leads you to those times. The horn opening section for "Glories" is righteous and "Heart Faulty" is the climatical beat of the deep blues. KB bleeds, courses smokes the rock of blues- a measure that is the light in the roll tunnel. Led Zepplinisck at times, but then flipping to Janis Joplin and Muddy Waters with a twinge of Ella. Freaking fantastic and not to be missed- this deserves the crack, snap and pop of vinyl with a gin in a smoky barroom...damn straight it do. 


KB & The Idyllwilde is a soul-rock band based in Nashville, TN, led by high octane vocalist Katie Burke. Her lyrical content deals in the offbeat and the ugly; the extremes of love, sex, death and pain.
Sonically, the band draws influence from artists ranging from JanisJimi, and Zeppelin to Beth HartDMB, and Jack White.
The name ‘Idyllwilde’ is derived from its two root words ‘idyll’ meaning ‘story’, and ‘wild’ meaning anything goes. The two words come together in acknowledgment of the band’s mission: to make music without the limits of genre or content, honoring the idea that ‘anything goes’. To KB, every compelling story is worth telling no matter what it looks or sounds like.
