'INVOCATION' is KIT's second full-length and sees them producing a decidedly more reflective and considered album. Rooted in the occult and metaphysics, it's drenched in West Coast sunshine noir - a contradiction of excessive over-the-top speed-demon pop and ominous leviathans lurking right below the surface.
Recorded at the Department of Safety in Anacortes, Washington aka "Nowhere" - before this legendary all-ages art space shut down - the band removed all of its familiar comfort zones for the sessions of 'INVOCATION'. The northern latitude meant longer days to work in and a refurbished fire station to play with, the sound of its concrete halls folding into Phil Elverum's (Microphones, Mount Eerie) unorthodox recording.'INVOCATION' is available on CD and LP as of TODAY here:
Trash Kit return with a new 7" single bearing two of their finest tracks yet. 'Teenagers' is a triumph of immediacy, mixed emotions and thunderstorms, whilst double A-side 'How Do You Do?' is ultimately poignant with its mixture of handclaps and twisting melody. "Will I remember her this September when it gets wet? Break me up, sweep me up," sings Rachel looking backwards with different eyes.
The 7" is limited to 500 copies on translucent orange vinyl. The digital version is accompanied by an exclusive song entitled 'Happy New Year', taken from the same session as their album and included recently on their tour-only cassette compilation.
