    This album ought to see Kate Stables recognised as one of the most compelling voices in alt-folk.

    It's an understated yet absorbing work, full of delicate arrangements that are elegantly swept along by Stables' gloriously tender vocals. [May 2015, p.83]

    This album is about the layers that play out in a minimalist way. Each brush stroke, each note, is purposeful. This album doesn't scream "listen to me", it gently draws you in.

    These new songs don’t sound terribly different from Stables’ first recordings nearly a decade ago, but the music is bolder and more purposeful, with a broader, richer palette of sounds.

    Whether or not it’s enough to push Stables into a more prominent place, however, remains to be seen, but surely a wider acknowledgement of her prowess can’t be far away.

    The assembled talent takes This Is The Kit’s traditional folk to the edge of the avant-garde.

    For Much of Bashed Out, emotion is shown rather than told, but once the layers have been unpicked, it's obviously special. [May 2015, p.112]
