David Kitt is the son of a prominent politician. David Kitt’s music was the father to a sister of thought that for 2 albums saw him become Dublin’s most vital creative force. His light has dimmed considerably despite a measured improvement on last years ‘Not Fade Away’. But if you were compiling a ‘best of’ the majority would be plucked from ‘Small Moments’ and ‘The Big Romance’. The latter was a superb mix of acoustic and electronica and Kitt’s constantly inventive vocal subtleties. ‘Another Love Song’ (a small moment) is flawed, there are blemishes in the playing and some of the higher notes are missed (the whole album was culled from demo’s). It matters not a jot though, because the song is refreshingly honest, innocent and played from the heart. Kitt’s younger cousin provides the secondary vocals and it’s a wistful combination that fully blossomed on a cramped Whelan’s stage around the time ‘Small Moments’ was released. Prepare for the mother of all crying sessions. KD
