TK & The Holy Know-Nothings “Desert Rose” – Listen

We love a new genre subdivision, and TK & The Holy Know-Nothings  have one for us, describing their sound as “psychedelic doom boogie“.  Fair enough.  The band are the latest project for songwriter Taylor Kingman, and he has offered this insight into the philosophy behind his songwriting process “If you pluck a flower from the ground, it will die. If you put a bird in a cage, it won’t be able to fly. If you rhyme die with fly, you sound like an idiot. Life cannot be contained and love is not possession. I have made that mistake many times.” Fair enough.  ‘Desert Rose‘ is taken from the album ‘Arguably OK‘ which emerged on May 24th.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
