Kinjac is the pseudonym of musician/producer Michael Greer O’Shea. A true solo artist, he writes, plays, records, mixes, and masters every sound on every track. Kinjac’s eclectic, genre-bending style is perhaps best described as “Southern Gothic Electronic.” His lyrics explore dark themes of dystopian politics, ghostly hauntings, existential dread, heartbreak, betrayal, loss and death. ... more

Track Name: Doomsday Device
The most dangerous weapon is silence.
Track Name: Drown the World With Me
esoterrorism wisdom mysticism
slippin’ through the doors
of my mind’s corridors
sends me reeling on the floor
I’ve had enough I’m out of touch
whispered voices in a hushed tone
drone on and on and on

I don’t condone
the broken pieces of me
that steer me clearly
towards the nearly future
that I see
end of a culture built on greed
end of you and me
end of all we see
so now you see

I’ve got a problem
and I’m not the only one
I’ll be your remedy if you
drown the world with me
Track Name: Atomic Sun Spots (Remix)
atomic sun spots
blot out the sun
you ought to run
while you still can
from the technocratic man

something wicked this way comes
liars lie until they’re done
and nothing good was ever won
through the barrel of a gun

greed speeds the concentration
acclamations from the patients
of the sick disease
the promise of a dream’s a tease

transistor mister miser’s
talking on the radio again
he’s not your friend
no, no, no he’s not my friend
