Watch Kino Kimino Gallivant Through The Winnipeg Snow

Kim Talon and Sonic Youth’s Steve Shelley and Lee Ranaldo get snuggly and drink chocolate milk and Slurpees.

April 18, 2016

Kino Kimino is the musical lovechild of a project from Kim Talon, featuring Sonic Youth's Steve Shelley and Lee Ranaldo. The debut album Bait Is For Sissies was recorded at Sonic Youth’s Echo Canyon West studio, and is out June 3v via My Favourite Chords. Premiering today is their newest single, "Caste Out," which comes with a snuggly, snowy, Winnipeg-based video.


"This video is kind of a love letter to my home city, Winnipeg," Talon told The FADER in an email. "The song was initially inspired by the caste system in India and our (invisible/unnamed) Western equivalent to that. 'Caste Out' confesses the experience of being an outsider and speaks to the joy of finding others who swim against the current."
