about

Recorded in the Spring of 2012, this is Lazer Kitty's debut studio record with all the bells and whistles -- sweeping synths, raucous bass lines, and powerful drum performances. We are extremely proud of this record and we hope that you will treasure it as much as we do!

"The strength of RUINS is its backbone, well that and the audacity to strap some aggressive rocket boosters to a host of ambient textures that know when to float and when to boldly go into hyper-speed and actually take us somewhere. Contrasting textures illustrate a human immersion in a world that is often depicted as foreign. Synths and pads take a backseat to tightly cracked snares and stark piano melodies. Digital layers yield to organic instruments that never lose touch with the humans moving them forward. With each track its own self-contained journey, RUINS is more space travel than space rock, more astronomy than cosmology."

"Lazer Kitty are masters of the crescendo and decrescendo, of rising and falling action both in terms of volume and musical presence and atmosphere. There's simply no other way to put it. For as full an experience as the ride to the stars on "Revolutions Per Minute" is, the track also dips and slows at its zenith to allow for an even greater rise as it continues on. And the track is fairly emblematic of the album - full of bells and whistles that arrive at the exact moment they're needed and stay only as long as they're welcome while bass, drums, keys, and synthesizers guide a core, human direction towards the heart and mind of the listener." - Thompson D. Gerhart, Sputnik Music
