Sunday RnR: Taylor Hawkins – KOTA

kota-artwork

Taylor Hawkins, most often the drummer for the Foo Fighters, has put out a “mini LP”  KOTA under his own name, on which he takes on vocals, as well as nearly every instrument. The LP is a short and sweet collection of some pretty solid rock songs. Hawkins says it “takes off like Queen on a skateboard”, and there is a Queen like quality to some of the music, as well as some occasional funkier bits mixed in with the straight forward rock sound. “Southern Belles” and “Rudy” are easily the winners here for me, but the whole disc is worth a listen, it is only 6 quick songs, after all.
