KIT – “Invocation” – [Upset The Rhythm]

On their new sophomore full-length “Invocation,” Oakland/LA-based KIT gives us a great blend of rock with some melodic girl-group moments in the vocals. Recorded with Phil Elverum in Washington, it’s super fun and upbeat with pounding drums (often at the forefront), a bit of math-rock, feedback, drama, and lady vocals. “Cure Light Wounds” is one of my favorites, with its girl punk, yelled vocals, and lyrics referencing a broken heart that makes the singer ask, “Did you put a hex on me, a curse, a charm?” Members include Vice Cooler, Steve Touchton, Kristy Gesch, and George Chen and on this release they also have some guests, including Nora Danielson on vocals and violin and Themba Lewis on upright bass, vocals and noise guitar.
