This Is The Kit is Kate Stables. She has been turning heads in all the right places: A first album (Kr?lle Bol) produced by John Parish, singles (Two Wooden Spoons) released by Rob da Bank's label Sunday Best and now, finally a long awaited second album on Dreamboat Records. Wriggle out the Restless is born out of a new, slower way of working. Gestated over a long period the album has drawn on This Is The Kit's many musical friends (Rozi Plain [Fence], Jim Barr [Portishead] Francois [Fence] and The Lift men [Twisted Nerve]) to fill out their delicate music into a full, robust sound. "The aim was to have fun playing with people who's work I really like" says Kate "the more you exchange and share with people the better things get and the more you learn."This Is The Kit keep good company; they partnered Animal Collective, Tunng and Vashti Bunyan on Sunday Best?s Folk Off compilation. With each contemporary going on to bigger success with their next album and Drowned in Sound saying ?its personal touch is largely what makes [This Is The Kit] the British highlight, not to mention that of the compilation as a whole? it?s easy to see how Wriggle out the Restless will be Kate?s first step in the same direction. Live, This Is The Kit constantly impress. Low-key busking sessions have been interspersed by gigs with Vetiver, The National, Elysian Fields, Jeffrey Lewis, and Jose Gonzales. Under their own steam and often joined by long term collaborator Jesse Vernon they have played tiny village halls to the Acoustic stage at Glastonbury Festival and never failed to impress. Kate sings, plays guitar, banjo, trumpet and plays percussion. Her long time collaborator and regular live companion Jesse Vernon produced the album and contributes guitars, percussion, violin and percussion. Other credits include Jim Barr on bass, Francois Marry on organ, trumpet and piano and Rozi Plain on guitar, banjo and clarinet .

?Absolutely gorgeous, like an aural bath with the warm water
lapping over you? Cerys Matthews BBC 6 music
With no notable production values, the dry female vocals
recount a tale of soul mates, companionship and dependency,
the feel enhanced by her occasional wavering and the
fluttering 9/10 Drowned in Sound
?This is the Kit should be knighted for the fact that they
create that wonderful atmosphere with one singer, an
acoustic guitar and percussion only.? Altsounds.com
