This Is The Kit
Live at Third Man Records

This Is The Kit find the sublime in the humdrum on this new live 7”. Masterminded by Kate Stables, This Is The Kit have been recording since 2003, with records coming out on labels like Rough Trade and Brassland. Recorded live, ‘Cold and Got Colder’ comes out via Third Man Records, and sees Stables further explore her niche of shuffling, disjointed songwriting, pairing subdued soloing with stellar brass interplay.

This Is The Kit
Moonshine Freeze

Kate Stables’ project This Is The Kit has a new album out, and it is a beautiful and multi-angled thing, with instrumentation and production (by John Parish) that moves lightly around Kate’s songs. Moonshine Freeze feels playful and fleet-footed without being lightweight, making it a bit of treat. Out on Rough Trade.

This Is The Kit
Bashed Out

On 12” Vinyl or CD. Bashed Out is the outcome of This is the Kit collaborating with Aaron Dessner (The National), the results are a sort of hypnotic and gorgeous slowed down crystal clear rock, with that emotional grit that will keep it stuck in the back of your head. A must for fans of The National, Joni Mitchell, Bon Iver, Caught in the Wake Forever.

Wriggle Out The Restless

This Is The Kit are rising evermore, having released a cracking record of folk mythos in Moonshine Freeze. Back in 2010 they made this record called Wriggle Out the Restless which showed signs of their tender experiments, using banjos and horns to create a quietly earth-shattering fanfare. Worth revisiting.

This Is The Kit
Krulle Bol

This bloody well Is The Kit you know, so you’d better pay attention - we’re only going to go through this once. Krülle Bol is the debut LP from Kate Stables’ project. It was originally released as a limited run in 2007, Disco-Ordination have now snapped up Krülle Bol for a second pressing. The dozen tracks here flit between gutsy folk and spare, shimmering rock, all of which gives the album a bit of a Beans On Toast vibe. Got that?
