The women of the world have given us an astonishing number of fantastic folk-rock records this year, and This Is The Kit’s pensive yet muscular Bashed Out is near the head of the class. It’s one of the best albums of 2015 not to benefit from a media hype sensation, but maybe listen and love it anyway? Be an individual by doing exactly what I say! Your latest gateway into the album is this video for “Magic Spell,” although these visuals — directed, created, and hand-drawn by Sam Wisternoff — accompany a non-album version of the track, slightly more raw and rocking than the briskly ethereal original. Watch below.
