Alternative rock one-man-band Mr. Kito is exploring new territories in his experimental new album, 'The Middle of Everything'. The album, released 12 August 2013, is dubbed as 'alternative rock', yet dabbles in a range of different genres, speeds and tones. Best described as a mix between alternative British rockers Radiohead and Placebo, Mr. Kito's compilations are a significant step away from the generic alt-rock sound.”
Lily Pavlovic - Songs That Should Be Mainstream
“In MR KITO sixth’s release, we find a matured approach to performance and refined production, at the same time, true to his style, MR KITO execution is straight to the point, ruff and no fluff. You are once again invited to take it as it is and enjoy the ride… True to the Alternative and Indie Rock musical genre, an experimental approach has been practiced during the recording sessions. With this album, MR KITO has stepped out of his comfort zone and aimed to deliver an original and solid material, with intensified attention on the vocals. Recorded in the comfort of Eric Michot’s home studio in Cape Town during the winter months, an up close and personal lyrical content can be expected. At the same time, committed to his style, driving bass lines and dynamic drums patterns, feature in this album once again. A retrospective outlook on human behavior, seeking freedom from the mind conceptualized created reality, is the topic of “The Middle of Everything”. ”
