In the space of a year, the youthful local quartet Kithkin went from being one of the many groups of unknowns competing in last year's Sound Off! to one of Seattle's currently most buzzed-about bands, particularly after a popularly praised performance opening for Los Campesinos! at the Neptune last month. Kithkin's sound, as heard on their debut EP Takers & Leavers, is exuberant and thunderously percussive in a way that recalls tribally-tinged rock bands like Yeasayer and Friendly Fires and also those blithesome hippie drum circles that hit the beach every summer. With Ambulance, Ghost Animals, Cat From Hue. ERIN K. THOMPSON
