This Is The Kit Releases New Album ‘Off Off On’

Today This Is The Kit release new album Off Off On, with The Independent hailing Kate as ‘one of the most original and musically gifted artists of today’. Inspired by the time she spent as a featured vocalist on The National’s latest album + tour, Off Off On is a beautifully clear distillation of leader Kate Stables’ lucid lyrics and expansive song-writing skills. Grounded in, but hardly confined by her folk background, Stables embraces jazzy cadences, tranquil woodwind, soulful brass, African highlife and desert blues.

Reviews for the album include  Uncut (9/10), Mojo (4*), The Independent (4*), The Times (4*) Record collector (4/5), Line of Best Fit (8/10), Under the Radar (8/10), Gigwise (8/10)

Although Kate can’t perform in real life, there will be some intimate online performances across shop socials starting this evening on Rough Trade Shop’s IGTV from 6pm. Full schedule below:

23rd October – Rough Trade Transmission (6pm)

24th October – Banquet Records (6pm)

25th October – Resident Music (6pm)

26th October – Pie & Vinyl (6pm)

In addition to this, on Wednesday 28th October Tim Burgess will be holding a Twitter Listening party for the album from 9pm, where Kate will be tweeting along as you listen through the album, giving insights about recording, writing and themes behind the songs.
