Straight from the band's site:
Singer and songwriter Ben Barnett is the base of Kind of Like Spitting, and such a talented and prolific individual that, while he may not have the best luck available, he certainly manages to create some of the most overwhelmingly powerful songs of love and torture imaginable—again and again and again. He seems to write songs in the way that you breathe—consistently, constantly, and as a necessity—pouring albums from his mouth, head, and hands multiple times a year, each one as essential and moving as the next.
Ben’s songs can rotate between somber, solemn solo pieces, explosive, full-band rock or pop, and songs with his talented friends bringing in other instruments to highlight or create a mood. Between all styles handled by Kind of Like Spitting, though, lies the solid punk ethic and influence and an ability for immense lyrical depth and directness held by truly few. Think of the best singer/songwriters you’ve heard, and above or next to them is Kind of Like Spitting.
