This Is The Kit is the musical project of Kate Stables. Live, they 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.
Kate sings and plays guitar, banjo, trumpet, and percussion. Her long-time collaborator and regular live companion Jesse Vernon produced the album and contributes guitars, violin and percussion.
Join The Dots had this to say about Blue Daisy: “Kwesi Darko a.k.a Blue Daisy has been a name fluttering about for a while, first found his breakthrough via pioneering DJ and living musical Heroine Mary-Anne Hobbs over a year ago now and having been championed by many as UK’s answer to Flylo he prefers to stick with “UK’s Answer? No, just a London boy with a passion for music” and this clear as a blue sky in his sound, creating music that is so forward thinking it can leave you pretty confused as to if this is really a brain of a 24 year old at work or a far more experienced individual. His music influences stem from everything such as hip-hop to gospel, Grime to Dubstep, psyche rock to drone, Black Sabbath to Pink Floyd and more, far to many to mention. A young artist in his own domain without a doubt and a man with a lot more surprises up his sleeve for the future. 2011 will also see his debut LP release, “The Sunday Gift” via Black Acre featuring guest appearances from the likes of the critically acclaimed vocalist Heidi Vogel (Cinematic Orchestra), Wah Wah 45′s Stac and more. Keep Watch, this is no one hit wonder.”
Things people say about Rough Fields: “Astonishing music” (Gilles Peterson), “Tremendous” (Lauren Laverne), “Really rather good” (Gideon Coe), “Outstanding experimental music” (www.blindfun.com), “…the new Robert Wyatt!” (Nick Luscombe). Nuff said.
Banks is the Brighton based multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer Alex Banks, recently signed to Ninja Tune. He has remixed Bonobo, Andreya Triana, Husky Rescue and Lamb.
Sunlightsquare (aka Claudio Passavanti) is one of the most exciting names around in Latin music at this moment – he’s had releases on Brownswood as well as his own label, and his take on modern Afro-Cuban jazz is pretty much the definitive article right now.
Vive la République!
