This Is The Kit get Album of the Year, José González tour & new EP - December 04, 2015
We try not to let our site get too dominated by a single artist, but what a run This Is The Kit have had in 2015, hogging attention in a way quite counter to their considerate nature. We're pleased to confirm the details of their new Rusty and Got Dusty EP, a new support slot opening for José González across continental Europe in December and, last but not least, the selection of their Bashed Out LP as one of BBC Radio 6 Music's Albums of the Year. We'll lead with that last bit since there's not much ....continue....

Holidays with Brassland, Mx. Bond and Misters Bischoff & Lerche - November 27, 2015
If you spend any length of time in New York City, you'll be familiar with double happiness.

OCTOBER - 02 Los Angeles, CA: Bovard Auditorium, USC - 05 Seattle, WA: Benaroya Hall - 07 AnnArbor, MI: UMS at Michigan Theatre - 09 Minneapolis, MN: Walker Art Center - 10 Chicago, IL: Old Town School of ....continue....Tweet
This Is The Kit collect praise, BBC support & tour dates - August 11, 2015
This year's been a doozy for This Is The Kit (aka Kate Stables and whoever joins her aka TITK for short). We released their new, Aaron Dessner-produced album Bashed Out in April. (Vinyl came along a few months later and, hey now, links to get it in any format are here if you are so inclined.) Reactions have been universally positive, with some daring to call it one of the best British albums of 2015. (That "some" includes "us" of course.) We'll get into more details about the positive reviews in a moment but ***HEADLINE ....continue....
