After astonishing us all last year with her album EARS and collaboration with Suzanne Ciani, Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith is already back with a new thirteen-track LP, The Kid.  A retracing of Smith’s childhood experiences and development on Washington’s Orcas Island, The Kid sees Smith taking her spellbinding Buchla synth compositions further than ever before.

While the LP isn’t out until October 6, you can listen to “An Intention” now, and damn if it isn’t one of her most gorgeous tunes yet.  Her vocals are clearer than they often were on EARS, allowing lyrical gems to shine through, like “the hardest part of finding out your name, is owning it and all that it contains.”  All the while the music hovers and swarms like space dust from a long-past supernova.
