Long-running Seattle band Kinski’s first appearance on Sub Pop was this 7”, released as part of the Sub Pop Singles Club. The single finds Kinski in relatively minimal form, albeit characteristically noisy. “Penthouse Suite” creates a discordant wall of noise, not unlike a rather musical dishwasher or construction site. “Please Remain Seated” is more melodic and quite texturally satisfying, gently whirring guitars placed against a tapped out drum beat.
