This Is The Kit - bashed out

I first listened to this album while driving to work earlier this week, a misty morning at the end of Summer and "Bashed out" seemed the perfect soundtrack. Misty alt folk then, songs of light and shade. This is the band's third album though "band" might be a bit strong as This Is The Kit is really Kate Stables.

The album and especially the song "Silver John" is lovely it really is, delicate and intricate. The album doesn't hit you over the head, its much more understated than that. It invites you in and makes you a cup of tea. The arrangements are deceptively simple and multi-layered. Like all the best work you find something more to appreciate the more you listen to it.
