Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

Recorded and mixed in a Dublin bedroom over the 12 months of 1999, Small Moments is nothing if not appropriately named. The debut release of youthful Irish minstrel David Kitt, this is a restrained, understated mini-album of fragile modern folk melodies, backed with the sputter of electronic percussion and synths in time-honoured lo-fi style. This is far from an amateurish effort, though; Kitt's muse is located in the hazy, neo-folky vein of Beth Orton or Kathryn Williams, obsessively well-crafted and cosily complete. He is, however, eager to deal the odd wild card: "Another Love Song" features guest harmonies from his nine-year old brother Robbie, who clearly shares the ol' Kitt vocal chords; and the tender "Days For Two" segues, unexpectedly, into a reading of the Bee Gees' "In The Morning". Still, it's Kitt's own "Headphones" that tells his story best--a day in the life of a bedsit poet, content in beautiful isolation: "Don't try to call/ I can't hear the phone/ I've got my headphones on/ And I'm all alone." --Louis Pattison

4.0 out of 5 stars tender and accessible 9 Aug 2002
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Although not always a sign of quality, i found with this debut ep from dubliner Kitt, that i could listen to every song straight away, from the word go the softly spoken gentle lyricsim of Kitt engaged me. With the first song Kitt takes us into his softly softly acoustic world with skill and understated ease. His voice although not enchanting has a wistful quality that is thoroughly listenable. The stand out track is number 4 'another love song' which although almost sickeningly sweet and twee (his young brother accompanies) has an infectious quality that comes from the endearing sentiment of the lyrics and the fairly subtle use of his brother's vocals. This is simple music that is simply delivered and so although it has questionable depth i love it and as far as i am concerned god bless its simplicity

4.0 out of 5 stars Sounds to warm the cockles of your heart 8 Dec 2000
Format:Audio CD
Small Moments has a way of entering your bloodstream via your ears and travel to every part reverberating deep melodic sounds that not only touch your soul but warm your heart. The album which i belive to have been recorded in Kitts home (which adds a surprisingly pleasant element to the recording) is a work of genius. It could be refered to as David Grayesque or could be compared to Dublins own Paddy Casey. But trust me if moody, thoughtful music is your thing then this is for you....

4.0 out of 5 stars An album to dream to! 31 Aug 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
What can you say? Light the candles, turn off the lights then just lie back and wonder. This album is a stunning debut which has given acoustic/electro a whole new twist. Melodies and choruses that have you wistfully smiling at the rememberance of fleeting meetings and cherished words. This can be the soundtrack to your dreams - just witness his 11 year old brother accompanying him on "Another Love Song", the perfect album. Hush, so delicate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerful album, softly spoken 31 May 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is one of those albums that insinuates itself on the listener and really does bode well for his first full length release in June. David Kitt has that great ability to be accessible but not corny, intelligent but not intellectual, and his songs are genuinely affecting. The opener is a tremendous grower, and his duet with his younger brother is spine tinglingly good. By focussing on the small moments in life, David Kitt manages to make a great impact on the listener.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very Promising Debut! 23 Jan 2002
By Ian Creamer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I think David Kitt will surely go on to become an international superstar given the right exposure.This c.d. offers listeners the rare chance to capture the origins and birth of a of a future star.In my opinion his last c.d. "The Big Romance" was the c.d. of the year.This c.d. is not as good as that.There are a few reasons for this,but the main one being that this c.d. sounds very raw and almost unprofessional in comparison to the slick production of his 2nd album.No wonder really when you consider it was recorded on an 8-track at home in his bedroom.It certainly doesn't have that big corporate feel to it-I mean this really sounds like a home recording.You can compare the two albums as one track "Step Out In The Morning Light" appears on both c.d.'s.The difference is quite startling.On this c.d. the vocals sound almost feint,the drum machines not as crisp-but in some ways this version has it's merits.The harmonies are startling and he also uses a flute on the track.It's a great track no matter what.
He shows his penchant for throwing in long tracks again on this c.d.,with the opener "There Are Words".It's a pretty hypnotic track and the listener finds themselves getting totally engrossed as you try to make out the vocals which are barely audible.I hope he does this track again on a future album,cos it's quite an astonishing track..The production on the 2nd track is really good-it's very similar to a Big Romance track.He uses a couple of drum machines and his own acoustic to back multi-layered vocal harmonies.The 4th track is really cool-he gets the help from his much younger brother-Robbie to help on backing vocals(he has appeared with him in concert for this track,for a collective "Aaah" from the audience).The results are really cool,amaturish but quite endearing too-it's a favourite amongst the female fans!His vocals sound even more James Taylor like on track 5.To those who don't know about him-Kitt has this wonderfully mellow,deep and rich voice that totally chills out.When you hear his vocals everything seems to move a zillion times slower!The 6th track is in fact two songs mixed together.The first part "Days For Two" is a gentle acoustic number-with just vocals and high acoustic notes.The second part is a cover of a Barry Gibb track called "In The Morning".You'd hardly notice this until you read the credits-but when aware it's pretty clear.I have to say I prefer the latter half on the song.The final track is a very long one also and finishes off the album beautifully.He uses interesting sounding drum machines,more acoustic and Blue Nile like synths.Again it's a pretty slow-tempo track until the electric guitar kicks in after a few minutes.It sounds vocally like a sort of mantra chant and is very infectious.
David Kitt has achieved a major following here in Ireland.He's almost like 'Ireland's secret' in the same way David Gray was.I prefer the 2nd album,but I also think this is worthy of between 3/4 stars.Yet I do know quite a few people who much prefer the fresher and more raw elements of this c.d.No matter which way,Kitt is just a really good singer/songwriter!
