Ellie Herring returns with her second release for the Racecar imprint entitled Kite Day. This much anticipated album is released on CD with remixes by Albert Swarm, Sines + Katastrophic, and VHVL. Kite Day is dark yet playful, as if the children of the corn went dancing. Sounds that appear to come out of nowhere leave you scratching your head and wondering how Ellie creates such gritty yet beautiful sounds. All the while, the groove is steady and strong, daring you not to move your feet.This may be her most experimental release to date and it manages to be her best as Kite Day intertwines sadness, beauty, and life.
