Dig into this week’s Saturday Alternative playlist! The Fitting Room album was Moonshine Freeze by This Is The Kit.

This Is The Kit is the project of Kate Stables, a singer songwriter from Bristol, currently based in Paris. In 2015 she and her band released their critically acclaimed third album, Bashed Out, which was produced by Aaron Dessner of The National. Aaron also appears on her new album, Moonshine Freeze, playing keys and guitar on several of the tracks. Stables’ sound is expanding here as she works with producer John Parrish, well known as a longtime PJ Harvey collaborator. She remains rooted in subtle, yet deep and sophisticated folk rock, but the addition of synths and horns takes her sound to the next level, and only adds to the often whimsical and playful nature of her music. Moonshine Freeze is out now on Rough Trade.
