Portland Mercury:
Love him or hate him, there is no denying that KOLS's very own Ben Barnett is the finest singer-songwriter to call PDX a home. With a level of proliferation that would give Bob Pollard a run for his money, Bridges is KOLS's seventh full-length, and hands-down his best work.

Kind of Like Spitting has released six previous records on small DIY labels and done fourteen tours, taking a staunchly independent approach to making records and performing. Ben Barnett, the core element of Kind of Like Spitting, is an astounding guitarist and songwriter, and has a punk rock heart and mind; his tours have often made stops in basements, houses, and unofficial venues, sometimes as a blistering full band but more often as singer Barnett and guitar. His work ethic, politics, and the aesthetic of his DIY influences (including Minor Threat/Fugazi, Minutemen, Descendents and the like) is audible in the music he creates.

Recorded by John Goodmanson (Sleater Kinney, Team Dresch, Unwound, Wu-Tang Clan, Low), Bridges Worth Burning is the clear pinnacle of the band�s body of work to date, and heralds a new era for what might be the most intriguing and original voice to come out of the mostly-stagnant indie-punk-emo scene in a very long time.
