This Is The Kit Moonshine Freeze The fourth studio album from recently signed to Rough Trade artist Kate Stables, under the alias of This Is The Kit. Sonically the album delves through multiple genres and influences, it's singer-songwriter but mixes in some funk, indie, nursery rhymes and folk. “I’m not yet someone who says ‘I want this album to sound like an 80’s French nightclub’,” she says. “All I can do is write the songs and then step back from them and see what themes or patterns there are, then bring those patterns out so it’s a coherent piece of work, sonically and in terms of feeling.” Rough Trade CD | LP
