Tempo No Tempo "Kilometer"
- Words: Patric Fallon
On "Kilometer," another cut taken from Waking Heat, the debut album by San Francisco post-punk trio Tempo No Tempo, a synthesizer takes center-stage, although it's flanked by jangly guitar riffs and a bouncing drum beat. Soaked in lead singer (and occasional XLR8R scribe) Tyler McCauley's fervent vocal delivery, the track is a prime example of the group's penchant for rhythmic tension and terse melodic assaults. Tempo No Tempo just finished an East Coast tour and slew of dates at CMJ, and Waking Heat is available now.
