Arms of Kismet released a trilogy of albums – Eponymous (2004), Cutting Room Rug (2005), and Play for Affection (2010) — on the Wampus Multimedia label. Play for Affection was named Independent Album of the Year by The Daily Vault in 2010.
AoK has also been featured in PopMatters, Hybrid, Skope, Neufutur, Groovevolt, Ear Candy, Modern Dance UK, Delusions of Adequacy, and many other outlets. Its music has been playlisted by Sirius XM, AOL Radio, Yahoo Launchcast, Creamy Radio, and Radio Crystal Blue, and appeared in numerous independent films and multimedia productions. In the words of Radio Casbah impresario Mike Perazzetti, “On the surface, it’s great power pop. A little below the surface is a whole other species of musical madness.”
That “madness” fuses acoustic, organic instrumentation and found sound, summoning a warm, analog vibe that sounds as natural in a coffeehouse as it does on a car radio. Guitars and dancebeats coat sugary melodies and fractured lyrics, blending genres in offbeat and revelatory ways.
