We are very excited to share This Is The Kit’s stunning fourth album ‘Moonshine Freeze‘ (along with instrumentals), published by Beggars Music and released on Rough Trade Records.
Now four albums in, the story of This Is The Kit is itself one of time and change and listeners. It has carried Kate Stables from Winchester to Bristol to Paris, across tours and festivals and the admiration of critics and her peers. Among these are Sharon Van Etten, The National (Aaron Dessner appears multiple times on ‘Moonshine Freeze’), Chris Thile (of Nickel Creek, Punch Brothers, and now the host of A Prairie Home Companion), as well as Guy Garvey and much of BBC 6Music. And the story has now led to ‘Moonshine Freeze’, This Is The Kit’s Rough Trade debut, and her most sonically accomplished and compelling album to date.
This Is The Kit create something quite mesmerizing, a sound seemingly unbound by time or place. Kate Stables has long been an exceptional songwriter, but with ‘Moonshine Freeze’ comes the thrilling sensation of an artist truly finding her voice: as if these are the stories she has been waiting to tell, these the dark coves and shadowy glens she’s been longing to lead us through.
