Boomkat Product Review:
This excellent debut album from Oakland’s Kit comes after a number of split 7” releases alongside Wives, Captain Ahab and the mighty Deerhoof. Kit in fact have a great deal in common with Deerhoof: both bands have a penchant for juxtaposing visceral no-wave guitars against blissful pop vocals, utilising some pretty left-of-field production techniques along the way. By no means are Kit as easy to pin down as that, however: the free noise abandon of ‘Maps’ propels them into the sort of punk netherworld Boredoms hang around in, while the nursery rhyme garage of ‘Forest’ is similarly barmy. Single potential comes from ‘Fake Broken Legs’, which sounds like Melt Banana produced by DAT Politics, slamming unintelligible, stuttering vocals against cheerfully out-of-tune synth hooks. Proving that Broken Voyage isn’t merely an album of energetic, hipster avant-rock, ‘Nautical Lament’ encroaches on some altogether murkier territory, weaving some haunted electronics and dissonant dulcimer passages in between all the jagged riffing. It might seem all too brief (clocking in at just over twenty minutes), but Broken Voyage is an exceptionally enjoyable debut with far more ideas crammed into it than its short duration could possibly suggest. Highly recommended.
