HomeMusicReview: The Kills The Kills “Black Rooster EP” (Dim Mak) Ultra-hyped, lo-fi, indie, garage pop, but so far the hype seems justified. The Kills pull off a stylish and charming batch of bluesy, stumbling, rumbling, tunes that amount to a rough cross between the White Stripes and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs. Or maybe a cross between mellower Royal Trux and the Pretenders. Either way it’s fun and they’re going to be so huge it isn’t even funny. Rough Trade just put out a full length for them. Dig it, dig it, dig it, kiddies.
