Granted, Seattle band Kithkin describe themselves as a "tribe of Cascadian treepunks" with a goal of spreading "the hidden knowledge of the forest," but their music is no flute-heavy cutesiness; after all, Kithkin was inspired by a novel about the collapse of civilization. With truly wild drumming—all four members play drums—and more whooping, hollering, howling and chanting than singing, Kithkin's sound is an apocalyptic, primal mix of psych-rock, hard-hitting punk and black magic. Their debut full-length album, Rituals, Trances & Ecstasies for Humans in Face of the Collapse—released in May—is full of Kithkin's "witchee rhythms," especially in the killer "Fallen Giants" and the various "Din" tracks, which are drum-only interludes scattered throughout the album. Aan, The North Valley and Lake Island will also perform. (Kolbie Stonehocker, City Weekly)
