Tight Bros. Network and Triple Ds present:
King Woman | Jaye Jayle
- DAY OF SHOW
Kristina Esfandiari originally formed King Woman back in 2009 as a solo project which later turned into a full band. Their debut EP "Doubt" touches on some heavy topics and allows Esfandiari's lyrical ingenuity to really shine; with nods to issues like religious abuse, the four resulting tracks are cathartic, brooding, and hypnotic. The record was recorded with Patrick Hills (Tera Melos, 7 Seconds, So Stressed) at Earth Tone in Sacramento, CA in 2015. The band wears their musical influence on their sleeve: "We love bands like Black Sabbath, OM, Neurosis and Jesu", said Kristina, and with her lush and dramatic vocals not unlike Mazzy Star, King Woman has created a sound all their own.
Since the release of "Doubt" King Woman have played shows with bands such as: Ceremony, Planning For Burial, A Place to Bury Strangers, Weekend, and True Widow, leaving audiences speechless and ravenous for more.
Their first full length album “Created in the Image of Suffering”, recorded at Jack Shirley’s Atomic Garden, is set to come out in 2016 as one of the most anticipated releases of the year.
Those who know Evan Patterson from the aggressive throb he deals as the front man of Louisville’s Young Widows might be taken aback by his singer-songwriter alter ego Jaye Jayle. There is no cocksure swagger or the aggressive walls of guitar the band is known for anywhere on either side of this solo single. Instead, you get the A Side “The Beast Keeps Cool”, a late night burner of a track that ties together the simple, synthetic swiggles and pulses of 60’s electronic mavericks the Silver Apples with the straight ahead strum and bang of a Velvet Underground jam while the B Side “It’s Jayle Time” comes off like the soundtrack to an unmade psychedelic spaghetti western where an outlaw with a heart of gold rides into town to settle a score and maybe score a little peyote. Jaye Jayle is a one way trip into the loner zone occupied by the likes of Neil Young, Fred Neil, Vernon Wray and many other introverted souls. Do yourself a favor and grab a ticket for the ride. - Jade Tree
