After getting the Scientists back together at the New York All Tomorrows Parties festival where they were invited to perform alongside the reformed Iggy & The Stooges, Kim Salmon and Leanne Cowie decided to re-enter the studio to record a new album of primitive garage rock n roll entitled "True West" as a two-piece project under the classically simple moniker of 'Kim & Leanne'.
True West has been described as another Salmon/Cowie classic with their world famous primitive dark art-punk dragged out of the garage and covered in hooks, The album opener (and second single) "The Science Test" is a foreboding industrial minimalist garage rock hook that drags you out of your comfort zone and after 2 and minutes, leaves you stranded. "Carry On Baggage" is just like an undiscovered 60s Garage Pebble ala Sky Saxon or the 13th Floor Elevators. "Ow! Baby, Baby" is a Tyrannosaurus-Rex sized foot stompin', hand clappin' hunk of Glam Rock. "Dead Flowers" is Salmon and Cowie's slowed down, honey dipped feedback and reverb drenched take on the Rolling Stones' classic, The debut single "Freudian Slippers" is a slice of garage soul about the joys of amateur psychology. "Hard To Get" belies its title and is actually hard to get out of your head, The album closer. "Get A Hold Of Your World" remotely channels Television with its chugging riff, stream of consciousness lyrics and jagged guitar solos.
