Tim Kinsella & Jenny Pulse Sign to Kill Rock Stars, Release New Single “Sun Inspector”

“Most of our songs go through long, slow evolutions and this song’s transformation is as profound as any of them. It began as dreamy layers of patterned choirs, synths, and vocals.

This song, we reduced and transmogrified different melody lines into guitar and bass parts, and then added a fast beat. The ‘Sun Inspector,’ that’s the bureaucrat tasked with ensuring that the sun doesn’t slack on its procedural duties.”
