K.I.T. are a super-melodic experimental rock band from Oakland, California. 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. K.I.T. 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. VICE COOLER hit on the idea of having MIKE WATT guest on some tracks, and the band re-visited 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, while K.I.T.'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. Lyrics touch on the state of ecological and political disrepair that even the least crustafarian music fan would have to notice in 2008, post-peak oil and in the last throes of Bush doctrine. Will we make it out the other side? The closing song offers some hopes.
