KIT’s new video is crazy fun; new Phil Elverum-produced album is available now

http://vimeo.com/15958298 LA/Oakland experimental pop band KIT recently premiered a Vice Cooler-directed video on The Fader that channels the giddy rush of "Rain" into a scene of a bunch of friends having fun rocking out. The song's off Invocation, the band's second full length album, which was produced by Microphones/Mt. Eerie leader Phil Elverum.

Here are two more nervy/catchy songs from Invocation: KIT - "Merticane" KIT - "Cure Light Wounds" KIT are at Artists' Television Access on November 20th (3pm, $6). Invocation is available now.
