This night will see the launch of his second solo EP No Pasa Nada, a heady cloud of greyscale sound design, ghostly timbres and deep sonics.
LTO’s No Pasa Nada EP will be released through Injazero Records on the30th March and a limited run of handmade lino prints which come with a download code for the EP, will be available at the launch.
“An adventurous blend of hues grey and dark.  Staggeringly rich” Fact
“Awash with crackling, fuzzy low-end decayed beats, glowering bass, moody, masculine piano textures, and percussion like a tour round a blacksmiths forget” 8/10 Drowned in Sound.
Edapollo will be taking to the stage with dream-like impressionist visuals, the colourful display explores textures and movement, expect to be captured by this new AV performance from Ed and Jason Baker.  Edapollo is currently taking some studio time to work on a  much anticipated release, which we will see later this year.

Artistic Director Series with Beth Orton announced.

I will be joining 12 other female musicians from across the UK next week for the Artistic Director Series, this year being led by Beth Orton.  I am thrilled to announce i’ll be joining women in hope to raise the profile of women in music, which Brighter Sound decided to highlight as previous years applications showed a vast under representation of women.

Read more in the press release below.

Beth Orton Residency

Wall of Sounds Artistic Directors Series #4 – Beth Orton – Brighter Sound// // //

In February, singer-songwriter Beth Orton will be collaborating on new material with 13 specially selected up-and-coming female musicians during a week-long residency at Manchester’s Band on the Wall. On 20th February Beth and the residency participants will perform the fruits of the week’s endeavours, live at a special finale event.

Beth Orton is a BRIT Award-winner and two-time Mercury Prize nominee who has collaborated with Bert Jansch, Emmylou Harris, Beck, and Terry Callier among others. Her masterful songwriting and emotionally evocative vocal style – infusing intimate folk reminiscent of Nick Drake and Joni Mitchell with lilting and subtly atmospheric pop flourishes – has continuously evolved, yet always retained an intriguing mix of fragility and transcendence which never fails to move and inspire fans around the world. Her most recent album is 2012’s Sugaring Season, which Vogue called “A beautiful timely album, full of melancholy.”

Beth’s wealth of experience in the music industry, the eclectic mix of genres she works in, and her experimental approach to creating music all add to what will be a brilliant week and a truly unique performance.

The Wall of Sounds Artistic Directors Series gives emerging musicians a unique opportunity to experiment, collaborate and perform, encouraging new ways of working, thinking and approaching creativity. This way of connecting and supporting musicians was something that appealed immediately to Beth:

“I am thrilled to be asked to support and take part in this exciting and important project. Getting the chance to mentor — or simply the opportunity to stand as witness to — the diverse, and possibly unheard, talents of artists from all across the UK fills me with curiosity and some apprehension!  If I’m lucky I will get to share some of what has been passed along to me over the years.”

Remix EP

I thought it was time to put out a Remix collection.
So here it is, just in time for Christmas, a three track free EP.
I’ve remixed Bristol musicians and explored styles I don’t usually fully immerse myself in with my original music. close your eyes and turn up the volume.

Happy Christmas

KP Live at the Canteen, Bristol.

KP @ Canteen

Kayla Painter ‘s Dual Screen show returns for the last time this year to Bristol.

This free gig will showcase the unusual set up of two full sized projection screens, with Kayla performing a live set in between them. Expect to be taken on a dreamy journey through the stars whilst the visuals soar above the performer, and entangle you in an ambient sci-fi world of delights. You’ll catch glimpses of Kayla’s silhouette throughout the performance, and when released from your trance you may have trouble finding your feet, so we advise you move slowly upon exit.

Catch this unmissable show for the last time this year at The Canteen on Stokes Croft, 26th November, Free entry.

Support from Barnaby Carter

‘Gilles Peterson endorsed, Barnaby Carter’s soulful yet eclectic sound is homegrown talent to have more than one eye kept on in the coming months’ CRACK Magazine

‘Off the back of support slots with Lapalux and The Slow Revolt, and remixes for Nils Frahm, Elephant and Oliver Wilde, Barnaby Carter is readying a new release of dreamy hypnogogic electronica, with washes of atmosphere a la Mount Kimbie, Four Tet and Bonobo.’
