When I heard it for the first time I wasn't aware of why it was titled "Kitchen." Something broke inside of me and I wept! Only later did I discover that the song was literally an invitation to a beloved guest to enter the dining room, rest and allow themselves to be served by Love.
Since their S/T, I wasn't impressed by their music and 'Kitchen' brings a new breath that I need. It's weird to feel me again safe, as in a cocoon, totally hypnothized by this quiet melody...
“Kitchen” is the first aural glimpse into the Vespertine project, a collaborative concept wherein the entirety of Chef Jordan Kahn’s new Culver City restaurant has been custom-scored by Los Angeles’ own THIS WILL DESTROY YOU.
One of seven pieces written for the building itself (and even the space around it), “Kitchen” is the music that diners first hear as they are greeted by Chef Kahn before dinner service begins for the evening. In composing the music for this interaction, THIS WILL DESTROY YOU’s Chris King and Jeremy Galindo sought to convey a warm, hospitable – if not reassuring – tone for listeners that may (or may not) be present elsewhere as they discover and explore the spaces in and around Vespertine’s looming architectural monolith for the remainder of their stay.

Sorry I can't listen to this album until now. Already the concert in Hamburg, Hafenklang in May 2018 was sensational. Thank you very much for your inspiring and very worth listening to music. Frank S. Egles

Very moving work. I love the earlier albums, but I must say the instrumental is WLTS's strong suite. This must have been a very difficult album for the band to make. The emotion is almost tangible as you listen. Creating such emotion without lyrics is a testament to the musical talent of the band. Good work gentlemen. Keep it up.
Thank You R.A.S.S.

This Hammock album stands out of the crowd of the other Hammock albums. Not that those are worse, its just that this one is so unique yet still retains the Hammock identity. Its as if you have entered a french cathedral of angelic hymns and you are staring god in the soul. zero_requiem00
