So judge me by the page
But not by my cover
You’ll learn more with age
Like it or not, I live by the book


The first real stab at Jazz, its title is an homage to Miles DavisSketches of Spain. However, rather than channel Davis or any kind of more familiar fusion, the only ‘real’ jazz influence in the music actually comes with tinges of funk from Ethiopia.

A collaborative album with Hypnagogic-psych-pop act Mild High Club, who played the 2016 iteration of the band’s now defunct showcase festival, Gizzfest. Alex Brettin (of MHC) stuck around for a couple of weeks, and naturally some voice memo ‘sketches’ of songs materialised. With the sketches later completed by the band, the album retains the laid-back stoner fingerprints of MHC, tied together by the KGATLW signature ‘took too much’ weirdness.

What to listen to next:

If you want more Jazz sounds
If you want jazzy, stoner-psych rock
If you want more laid-back, ‘non-Western’ sounding songs
