Comments Off on Free Download Of The Week: This Is The Kit25 September 2017
According to Rough Trade Records, “Since forming ten years ago, This Is The Kit – the musical project which holds exceptional Paris-via-Bristol songwriter Kate Stables close to its heart – have released three albums, toured the world and earned the adoration of peers including Guy Garvey, The National and Sharon van Etten in the process.
‘Moonshine Freeze‘, their fourth album and Rough Trade debut, is undoubtedly their most compelling and accomplished effort to date. Produced by John Parish (PJ Harvey, M Ward, Perfume Genius), it began in the immediate wake of its predecessor, ‘Bashed Out’, when days after coming off tour last November, Stables and her band headed into the studio in Bristol. Aaron Dessner of The National also features on six of the album tracks. ”

According to his official website Jackie Greene, “hailed as ‘the Prince of Americana’ by the New York Times, has always had a knack for capturing the human experience in all its messy, emotional complexity, and on his new EP, ‘The Modern Lives – Vol 1,’ he draws inspiration from some of the great social paradoxes of our 21st century world: that the technology designed to simplify our lives can actually complicate them in ways we’d never imagined, that the most crowded cities can actually be the loneliest places to live, that the constructs meant to connect us to each other can actually leave us feeling more isolated than ever.

According to their record label, Partisan Records, “Cigarettes After Sex frontman Greg Gonzalez had a clear vision for his band’s debut album, a gorgeously cinematic work released on June 9, 2017. After the phenomenal online break-out success of ‘Nothing’s Gonna Hurt You Baby’ and the subsequent re-discovery of an earlier Cigarettes EP (‘I.’) from 2012, the Brooklyn transplant (originally from El Paso) wanted to project his worldview on to a bigger screen, a broader canvas. As Greg explains, ‘This is like the novel or feature-length version of Cigarettes. I wanted it to feel like a complete work, where some of the imagery repeats – like it’s all in the same world. It’s very much a fulfillment of the feelings in the short works.’
