[mp3] King Khan & The Shrines - "Torture"

The 60’s inspired rock n’ soul of King Khan & The ShrinesWhat Is?! was one of those records that slipped under my radar for most of 2007. That is, until mop up season in December. I’d now say “No Regrets” and “Welfare Bread” are easily among 2007’s best singles, and only didn’t appear among my faves because I didn’t hear them until it was too late.

Word today via Pitchfork is the band has recently signed on with Vice Records, home of their more well-known/less ass-kickin’ garage rock compadres The Black Lips. This June they’ll release The Supreme Genuis Of…, and, if first single “Torture” is any indication, the king will once again be reigning supreme over any and all bands equally smitten with The Stooges and James Brown.
