    After three previous albums, Moonshine Freeze is finally the sound of a storyteller of a musician finding her niche. And it is a joy to behold.

    This is an album that deserves big headphones and large sweeping views of grey coastal days.

    Sparkling banjos arpeggios; freak-out saxophjone; John Parish's inventive production; a wealth og strong, beautifully-enunciated vocal melodies--tons has gone into the latest work from Kate Stables, aka This Is The Kit, and all of it is good. [Aug 2017, p.91]

    Moonshine Freeze is an album that sparkles with exuberance and energy, but it also subtly and steadily gives up its deeper secrets. Stables has always had a knack for accomplished melody and intriguing lyrics, and as you dive under the surface, you can’t help but find a wealth of inspiring rewards.

    Even in its busiest moments, the album has a soothing effect. Its rough charms begin to feel like an acceptance of a world in disarray, refining its chaos into compact moments of beauty.

    Though it lacks some of the more memorable hooks that have appeared throughout Stables’ previous work, each song here has its own particular heartbeat, thus painting a portrait of an artist at her most reflective, if not always her most accessible.

    An enjoyable if low-key listen that consolidates rather than shakes Stables’ current status.
