Kinolectro is Dakota Blue (featured here) and Jenny Nirgends, cast here as two detectives who can’t get a clue. “Rip Bravo” is more soundscape or edge-of-sleep hallucination episode than pop song, with synthesizer a subtle as a hypnotic suggestion and barely there drums that pulse instead of beat. It’s all distance and flattened affect, with a narration of obfuscation counterpointed by surrealist observations in a Scott Walker (R.I.P.) baritone and static but still cinematic shots of a depopulated Montebello, rendered here as a twilight city at the midpoint of the commute from anywhere to nowhere. (There’s a little “Midnight Cowboy” in there somewhere, too.) Seems like this might be one of those mysteries that isn’t meant to be solved. As the band says: “I’m a horrible detective / I misinterpret every sound.” “Rip Bravo” is the first single from Kinolectro‘s coming Classic Kino Style EP—set watch for that here, and check out their past case files as well.
