"KIT are a super-melodic experimental rock band. They make very fast, short, defiant songs that play with and subvert pop music. Maybe they'll start off playing a song straight (sweetness and light abounds), before you know it everything gets flipped on its head and chased into chaotic abstraction. KIT songs can typically embrace hardcore rush, pop verse, jagged noise and cheer rally, all within the same moment; raw positivity and instinctive song-writing holding it all together. KIT has written a batch of new songs that break past song-lengths and delve into structural experiments with the ferocity of past efforts. Vice Cooler hit on the idea of having Mike Watt guest on the tracks, and while George's suggestion that we cover Jefferson Airplane's psychedelic classic 'White Rabbit' with Watt on vocals was canned, they did re-visit one of Broken Voyage's tracks, 'Flat Earth', a paean to the band's home town of Oakland. Three others are filled out with melodic runs by the Minutemen and Stooges legend (the bass used on this jam has sadly since been stolen by some karmically cursed Canadians) while KIT's Stove Touchstone holds down the official bass duties. Some horn overdubs with Jenna Thornhill of Silver Daggers and Mika Miko also find their way into the mix." On heavyweight gray vinyl.
