Get Your Heavy Load Off My Pack Mule
Recorded within the cramped confines of a college bedroom, Get Your Heavy Load Off My Pack Mule is Kinetic's debut album, featuring ten original songs. From the music and lyrics to the accompanying artwork, the album stands as a unified concept meant to invoke the image of quixotic travelers-of-old trekking across unchartered lands, acquiring cultural and spiritual knowledge as they go. Get Your Heavy Load Off My Pack Mule is a meditative contemplation on a fragmented and shattered society. At times highly political, often satirical, and certainly entertaining, Kinetic's first album is a genre-bending journey across the modern world. The diverse background of the band, heavily influenced by jazz, rock, funk, and avant-garde performance art, composes this genesis of modernity. Through Get Your Heavy Load Off My Pack Mule, Kinetic expresses the sublime beauty of music's communicative power, exposing the many layers and complexities that construct our modern society through an easily comprehensible medium. Kinetic has more to offer than the standard rock band. The album tells a story, traversing time from the roots of American jazz to contemporary rock riffs. With Get Your Heavy Load Off My Pack Mule, Kinetic emphatically proclaims they are here to make change, and nothing will hold them back.
