Kreamy 'Lectric Santa / Press

“There are times for expansion and there are times for contraction. KLS vibrate. Expand. Contract. Expand. Contract. The reference points are far-flung: Sun Ra, a near death spinal injury, Roky Erikson, broken glass, Crass, experiments with space and time, Smegma, violins, Bongwater, splattered paint, Hickey, rainbows inside of gasoline on water, The Creation, Eastern religions, and Shellshag. Art and aesthetics are personal choices. For music,”

“Listening to Operation Spacetime Cynderblock, I get the same feeling as when I listen to God Bless the Red Krayola… or Soldier-Talk. The same feeling as The Fugs Second Album or Virgin Fugs. More recently Failed Musician by Nutsak or anything by the Unknown Instructors. No matter how many times I listen to any of these albums, the next song, the next riff, sometimes the next second is a surprise. Like those others, Kreamy ‘Lectric Santa is impossible to categorize or genre,”

“Kreamy ‘Lectric Santa came on and blew my mind. The whole purpose for the show was to celebrate the release of their new album, Operation Spacetime Cynderblock: 4 Riddles of the Spheres, and they absolutely ripped through their set.”

“Exciting to see the re-emergence of Kreamy 'Lectric Santa, who came out of the Miami scene that produced Harry Pussy. They're in California now and sport a partially new line up, but they still wiggle as weirdly as ever.”

Byron Coley - The Wire

“Operation Spacetime Cynderblock, eclipses the band's previous work by leaps and bounds. Utilizing 22 musicians (including the late Powell) recorded over 11 years, the album bounces between three-chord punk skronk and sophisticated orchestration”

“It's rare when a band can create their own aesthetic, their own universe and be unencumbered by any outside influence, and KLS do it effortlessly and with a fair amount of snarky humor and astute observation. Not to mention they write some of the most infectious songs you are likely to hear.”

“They can be pop-punk, it can be grunge, it can be experimental/noise, it can be borderline metal and everything in between This is a band that is honestly un-equitable to any other band on the planet-one of the most original bands Ive ever heard.”

Fred - Maximum Rock and Roll

“Sirbo's crazy stage antics and Priya's scalding violin work are just as solid as they ever were”

“Intricate and joyful spazz-pop-noise-They brought down the house with their joie de vivre -- I mean, in Milwaukee the house is usually brought down before the first band even plays, but these guys REALLY brought down the house”

“The album works as a whole. It builds around itself without sacrificing the integrity of the individual tracks. The album's price includes the wax, a CD version, great cover art by Harumi Abe and forty downloads. That's a great deal.”
