Track Of The Day: Korea Kitten Riot - 'Cold Cold Arms'

Filled with an uplifting sense of hope, built on big percussion, and brought to life via some brilliant instrumentation, 'Cold Cold Arms' is a song by Korea Kitten Riot, which comes from their new album 'Rich Men Poor Men Good Men'. Hearing this lovely bit of pedal-steel blessed dreampop immediately made me want to hear the rest of the album, which features a number of other impressive moments. But it's this one that stand out the most on the band's third studio album, a record which was recorded in Berlin and mastered by Doug Van Sloun (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit). Koria Kitten Riot began as a solo project of Helsinki-based Antti Reikko, who recorded the first two albums mostly on his own. In 2011 KKR transformed into a five-piece touring band, and 'Rich Men Poor Men Good Men' is the first record to feature the whole group. It was released last week on October 6, via Yates Records.
