Knock Yourself Out
(2017, Independent)

In a region rich in musical talent, Knock Yourself Out, in this writer's opinion, are the Hudson Valley's finest purveyors of blisteringly raw rock 'n' roll. Honed to a razor-sharp edge by constant gigging from Brooklyn to Albany, the power trio of front man Josh Stark (guitar), Harrison Cannon (bass), and Mike Rasimas (drums), brings the heat of the Stooges and the heart of Hank Williams on this, their debut release. Baked into all the high energy is a keen and sardonic sense of humor. If you haven't seen KYO live, do yourself a favor and catch one of their gigs, posthaste. They have a monthly residency at Quinn's in Beacon and a fruitful ongoing collaboration with songwriter Mimi Sun Longo. Also check their new seven-inch, Put It On.
