"In their hometown of Seattle, Chris Martin, Lucy Atkinson, and Matthew Reid-Schwartz of the lysergic-punk band Kinski often play out incognito. Under the guise Herzog (film buffs should figure all these German names out pretty quickly), the goal is to experiment with mood, sound construction and interplay by channeling their chemistry into an exploration of their 'cosmic' side. These entirely improvised sets have yielded some truly heady excursions into the sonic ether. Although they may perform as Herzog, the sum of the parts is still Kinski, and while the intent is to shower the air with slow-raining space dust rather than their trademark heavy-paisley riffs, ambient drone is still very much an aspect of the overall Kinski sound. Don't Climb on and Take the Holy Water is a snapshot of these experiments, 'free-ambient' sounds weaved on the spot when the guitarists subliminally dialed into one another and directed their energies into a subtle exploration of drone, texture and atmosphere."
