Album of the Month - July 2017

THIS IS THE KIT - MOONSHINE FREEZE

Here we are in July, and to celebrate this lovely summer we’re having we have a fantastic Album of the Month for you by way of This is the Kit and their new album Moonshine Freeze.

This is the Kit is the band of Kate Stables, a Paris-based singer, multi-instrumentalist and fervent collaborator. Their fourth album – the title of which is inspired by a children’s clapping game – is their first since being signed to Rough Trade and is a sweeping, shuffling mix of warm-hearted songs delivered by Kate’s terrific vocals and backed-up by her alarmingly talented collaborators and friends.

In this month’s issue of Rough Trade Magazine you will find a conversation between Kate and her old friend and fellow musician Melissa Laveaux, accompanied by some pinhole camera photos taken by Kate herself. Our lucky LP members can enjoy this album on Rough Trade exclusive bright yellow vinyl and a bonus CD which includes some lovely cover songs.

LIVE - MEMBERS ONLY EVENT
