We are really excited to announce that we will be re-issuing the classic Kind of Like Spitting LP from 2000 “Nothing Makes Sense Without It,” along with or friends at Count Your Lucky Stars (who are also releasing a new KOLS LP, check out that announcement here.) Kind Of Like Spitting was a super important band for me growing up and it’s an absolute honor to be working with them and CYLS to release such a legendary record. Official press release is below, and expect more news on the reissue soon .
Kind of Like Spitting is the brain-child of Ben Barnett, a sometimes singer/songwriter, sometimes full band endeavor from Portland, Oregon. Running the span of an entire decade and releasing eight (count ‘em, eight) full lengths on labels such as Barsuk and Hush Records, and sharing the stage with the likes of Death Cab for Cutie and Braid, Kind of Like Spitting originally called it quits in 2006. Last year, Ben decided to pick up the outfit again and start writing new music and touring. 2013 will see him plunge back into action with new friends (Lizzy Costello of the Special Explosion) and the same fervor that has driven his entire career with a new LP released on Count Your Lucky Stars, as well as a vinyl reissue of his quintessential LP from 2000 Nothing Makes Sense Without It on Count Your Lucky Stars and Run For Cover Records.
